I am a little behind in my postings. I know about 2 months behind, but with the holidays and school finals I was a pretty swamped. In November I took a class on carving out cake into different shapes. This one was for a pumpkin. I was surprised at how relatively easy it was to do. I have carved a few cakes before (like the purse cake) and this was very similar. It was a little difficult to get the really round shape though. We also tried a new icing technique. Instead of spread icing over the cake with a spatula and smoothing it on, we piped it on to get those nice bumps that make the pumpkin look more realistic. I ended up using this cake as our Thanksgiving centerpiece. It really brightened up the table. My niece had a great time devouring it after dinner was over.
