Pumpkin-Shaped Cake

Make sure your cake ingredients—butter, eggs and milk—are at room temperature for maximum volume.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously grease and flour a 10-inch fluted Bundt pan.

In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Beat sugar and butter in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla. Add flour and milk alternately, beginning and ending with flour, mixing on low speed.

Pour batter into prepared pan, and bake at 375°F for 50-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes; invert onto cooling rack. Cool completely.

Glaze for Cone:

In a medium bowl, combine confectioners' sugar with water until mixture is desired consistency. Tint green with food coloring. Place ice cream cone on a wire rack over wax paper to catch the drips. Using a spoon, pour glaze to evenly coat ice cream cone. Allow to dry.

Note: Use red and yellow food coloring to tint Buttercream Frosting orange, then spread evenly over top and sides of cake. Set cake on a platter that has been decorated with faux autumn leaves. Fill center of cake with assorted seasonal candy and top with green ice cream cone stem.
