Surprise! A bright orange pumpkin with green stem!
Here is a quick tutorial on how to make this pumpkin surprise cake. Mix a white cake to make cupcakes. Add orange food coloring to 6-8 cupcakes for a 6" cake. Add green food coloring to at least one cupcake for the pumpkin stem:
Bake 350F for approximately 16 minutes:
Bake two 6" round chocolate cakes. Crumble the orange cupcakes into a bowl. Crumble a green cupcake into a separate bowl.
Next, press the orange mixture (crumbled orange cupcake with 2-3 tablespoons of frosting) firmly into both domes. Compact the orange mixture enough so it will hold its shape when you cut into the cake. I added a strip of Nutella for the filling between the two layers of chocolate cake. Flip the layer with the green stem on top of the other layer. Crumb coat, frost and decorate. Thanks again to iambaker for the original inspiration.
