I don't know what your talking about! Don't be so rude. This is the best cake I've seen.

So tasty! I love the texture you added with the icing, truly the icing on the cake in many ways! Ok that was a really bad pun.

Looks too good to eat! I've made a few pumpkin-shaped cakes before but it never occurred to me to bake 2 cakes, so mine were, I guess, 1/2-pumpkin cakes. Another thing I did differently - I cut a circle out of a foam plate that was small enough to cover the hole in the middle (it sat about an inch or so below the highest part of the cake), then frosted it with the orange frosting. I also melted some chocolate - chips, candy bar, whatever as long as it was plain chocolate - and pour it into a well washed prescription bottle or a tiny cup like those that come with liquid OTC medicine, again well washed. Once the chocolate had hardened I'd dip the "mold" in hot water for a few seconds, until the outside edge of the chocolate had melted enough so the cylinder of chocolate would slide out. Then, using a serrated knife, I'd carve it so that it looked like a pumpkin stem -large at the bottom with sides curving up to about half the size of the base. The teeth of the knife, when scraped from top to bottom, makes very realistic grooves in the stem. Now you have the special treat of the chocolate stem to offer someone special.
These instructions were terribly long (you could almost have done what I described in the time it took to type this!) but it's really quite simple!
