Jack O Lantern Cake

This is a two tier stacked cake.

The bottom is a single layer 10″ round iced in chocolate fudge buttercream. The pumpkin is several 6″ round layers stacked up together and carved with a serrated knife to give the general round pumpkin shape.

I frosted part of the front with a thin layer of yellow buttercream, where the facial features would be, and then outlined them in a small round tip in orange buttercream. Then I used a large round tip to pipe orange lines covering the whole pumpkin (going around the facial features) and giving that textured appearance.

I used a star tip to pipe a green icing “stem” on top- and then added some vines and leaves. I piped grass borders around the bottom of the tiers, with my grass tip.

Lastly the inscription is in light yellow buttercream done in a scary wiggly Halloween font!
