Charlie Brown has nothing on us this year. This clever idea is sure to impress everyone at your next fall potluck or Halloween party.

It’s always so much fun to see—and taste—the dishes at a potluck or family gathering. To create a stunning treat for your next event, try this reinterpretation of the classic bunt cake. It’s sure to be the star on the dessert buffet.

Use your favorite recipe to bake two bunt cake.  When cool, slice across the top of one cake to remove some of the rounded top.

Set the cake on a serving platter, spread a layer of your favorite icing or filling, and then carefully place the second cake on top.

Make a double batch of your favorite white frosting and reserve ½ cup.

Tint the frosting orange to cover the cake, and tint ½ cup of the frosting brown for the pumpkin’s stem.

For the Stem: Frost an ice cream cone with the brown icing and place on top of the pumpkin. Decorate platter with seasonal candies and embellishments as desired.
