Pumpkin Patch Cake
Erin Rebar


  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • Orange and green gel food coloring
  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • Orange and green food coloring and candy decors
  • Pretzel rods
  • Raspberry jam
  • White melting chocolate


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray 12 mini Bundt pans with nonstick baking spray.
  • Prepare cake mix and bake as directed, filling each pan halfway with batter.
  • When cakes are done, un-mold onto wire rack; let cool completely.
  • In 4-cup measuring cup, combine sugar with 3 to 4 tablespoons water to make thick glaze. Color with drops of orange food coloring. Melt white chocolate. Add green food coloring until the melted chocolate reaches the desired color.
  • With sharp knife, trim bottom of each cake flat; assemble into pairs. Using a small amount of jam spread onto the flat sides of cakes, assemble pairs to form pumpkins.
  • Cover pumpkin cakes with glaze and/or sprinkle with sugar decors. Break pretzel rods to fit as stems. Moisten pretzels with water and dip in green chocolate. Insert into centers of pumpkins.
  • Tint marzipan green for leaves. Roll and cut as desired and place around pretzel stems. Let cakes stand until glaze is set.
