2 Cakewalk Cakes: Two Bundt Cake Pumpkin & Spider Web Cake

Hi Friends!
My kids have their Fall Carnival tonight and I just took over two cakes for the cakewalk. Remember those??? I used to look forward to my own elementary Fall Festival as a kid each year...How fun and we all can't wait!

My two bundt cake pumpkin was inspired by this cake recipe from Stonewall Kitchen.
Pumpkin Shaped Vanilla Bundt Cake

The directions said two bundt cakes stacked with the flat sides together. However my bundt cake pan produced this shape. I have a feeling their picture was two oven safe bowl shapes stacked together. I might try that next time... Frosting a bundt cake without it looking kinda sloppy was like impossible! ha

I frosted my two bundt cakes (mine happen to be spice cake mixes) and then rolled out a little store bought Wilton pre made fondant.
I made a few leaves, and then used a pencil to shape the vines. Also my stem is stuck with toothpicks to hold it up into the cake.

Also I forgot to say I had to cut my cakes flatter at the bottom so there wasn't a huge gap.

 Making the fondant leaves and vines was beyond fun! That's the first time I tried it and I LOVED!

It was exactly like playing with Play-doh!

For the second cake I used a black decorating gel to make a giant spider web. 
Here are the steps for drawing a spider web.

 I placed a plastic spider from the craft store on top. Simple and cute!

I hope you are also enjoying this fun time of year! Have a beautiful weekend.

Where did you by the pre-made fondant from? I don't remember ever seeing that anywhere...
