I wanted to make a fun Halloween cake this year… but I couldn’t figure out what to do.

I don’t like skulls. (except when they are protecting that gelatinous mush that is my brain)

I don’t like spiders.  Anywhere.  Ever.

I don’t like ghosts and goblins and witches and all things spooky.

What does that leave me with?

Well, pumpkins of course. (I told you I was obsessed!)

So I made this.

Its a nice pumpkin.  Its orange.  Its rounded.  Its…well.  Its alright.

This is my Candle Lit Jack-o-Lantern Cake.

It is as much fun to eat as to make!

I really like to bake!

Stop rhyming for goodness sake!

This is my very first every surprise inside cake.  Who knew it would become something that defines my brand? 🙂  I love this particular surprise inside cake and hope you do too!  I have a full tutorial on it as well.
