I call this… The Pumpkin Patch Cake.
And in this two-part tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make a fall inspired Pumpkin Patch Cake. For the first part, we’re starting with something easy, how to make the fondant pumpkins that will be lying around the pumpkin patch.
Fall Inspired: Fondant Pumpkin Tutorial
What we need:
(1) Roll orange fondant into a ball. The size really depends on how big or small the pumpkin you want to make will be.
(2) Press the top of the pumpkin using a ball tool.
It should now look like this.
(3) Using an offset spatula, a knife or a toothpick, run segments from the bottom all the way to the top.
(4) To add a stem, get a small piece of brown fondant, shape in into a small tear and attach to the top of the pumpkin.
Here are some more pumpkins I made, in all shapes and sizes.
