The Great Pumpkin Cake

Updated on August 31, 2017

The Great Pumpkin Bundt Cake

What a great idea for a Halloween Party - a Great Pumpkin Cake. The only problem is, you won't want to cut into it. Be sure to take lots of pictures of this Halloween cake. The Great Pumpkin Cake will become a yearly Halloween tradition. Guests won't stop talking about it, so be ready to share your recipe. The great thing about this is it can be made from any favorite bundt cake recipe you prefer. I'm thinking there might be a way to make a fake one out of plaster or styrofoam to display year after year while you eat the real one.

Halloween Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Frosted or unfrosted, delicious either way!

The great thing about this Halloween cake idea is that you can use any type of cake you prefer. Following a Halloween/Fall/Autumn theme, a natural choice would be pumpkin cake, carrot cake, zucchini cake, apple cake, the ideas are endless. But if you're a chocolate lover like me, you'll revert to devils food. Or how about chocolate chip pumpkin cake? Umm. . .
