From start to finish

Here is a detailed look at how I created my pumpkin for the Big E cake decorating contest.

First I stacked two 10" cakes and 4 12" cakes and secured them with a dowel. It took me 11 boxes of Betty Crocker Pound cake mix!

Second, I carved the general pumpkin shape.

Third, I drew where I wanted the ridges to be with a food safe marker.

Fourth, I carved the ridges.

Fifth, I filled the layers.

Sixth, I crumb coated the entire pumpkin.

Seventh, I covered it in fondant.

And finally, I added all the fun details, piped the letters, and airbrushed it!
