Oh yum! Recipe?

Hmmm.... I was really kind of winging it while attempting this, hence why I don't have more detailed documentation.

The chocolate was basically white chocolate (or, in this case I used a high quality molding chocolate for ease of... molding) mixed with pumpkin pie spice. I tried a test using pumpkin flavored candy flavoring, which didn't taste good at all. So, that's another option, but it all depends on how the flavoring actually tastes. The spice itself, without any other added flavor, really does a good job of making the chocolate taste pumpkin-pie like.

The pumpkin pie was literally a basic pumpkin pie recipe like you'd find on the back of the canned pumpkin label. It was baked without a crust, and left to cool. It was then mashed and piped into the chocolate pumpkin shell, and around the cake.

The pumpkin spice cake, like the pie, was also baked separately, cut into pieces, and placed into the chocolate shells before sealing.

Seriously, it was a crazy process.

Thank you! I might be able to work with that. I'll have to try it. I like the idea of spicing the chocolate with the pie spice. And the idea of surrounding the cake with pumpkin pie filling was absolute genius. Sounds wonderful!

Wow, that looks awesome!
Tell me more - how did you do the layers?

kranders (author)canida2010-11-04

Thanks! It ended up being quite the process, especially since I really didn't quite know what I was doing...

To make the layers, I painted chocolate into each half of the mold with a silicone brush... popped into the freezer... pulled back out a minute or two later... and then repeated several more times until the chocolate was layered thick enough to withstand some sort of filling.

Then the layers of cake and pumpkin pie were assembled into each half... more chocolate poured into each mold... and when the chocolate had almost hardened, both halves (still in the molds) were assembled together.

Once completely hardened, the entire pumpkin is removed from the mold, and the seams left behind scraped off with a knife. The little green stem didn't fair quite so well... but maybe next time!
