It is almost October…that means lots of baking fun and everything pumpkin!! If it doesn’t taste like pumpkin it needs to look like a pumpkin we say, so alas a few pumpkin bundt cakes were born. Here’s how you make them.
You can make homemade pumpkin bread or used a boxed spice cake like we did with this one, totally your choice. If I had more time I would’ve gone all out with homemade but boxed did the trick for this “baking project”. Here’s how you make them.
Just cook the bundts in a mini bundt pan (affiliate links present) according to the directions on the cake mix, or make homemade pumpkin bread and cook accordingly. When they are done and cool take them out and cut the rounded part off the top of the mini bundt like you see here so the 2 will sit flush with one another and look more like a pumpkin when they are done. Here are the other items you will need:
Pumpkin bundt cakes
- boxed cake mix (any kind, we used spiced cake mix)
- 2 caramels per “pumpkin”
- orange frosting (or color white frosting)
Here’s a quick video showing you just how easy they are to make.
I don’t show it but just cut the rounded part off your bundt cakes before putting them together. Maybe 30 seconds to melt the frosting is all and push your caramels together to make the pumpkin “stem”. If you wanted to you could put frosting in between the bundts before melting and pouring it over to add to the sweetness. And that is how you make mini pumpkin bundt cakes.
