Pumpkin Patches and Jelly beans

November has always been a busy old month for my family, having four birthdays starting from the end of October, as well as bonfire night and the usual Christmas build up, it seems like we spend the whole month planning, wrapping presents and eating cake !
Now that our little one is getting bigger I'm managing to get back into the kitchen for baking a lot more, which I love. Before I became a mum I developed a love for baking and decorating cakes. I am no professional but I still really enjoy seeing what I can create and how different ideas will turn out.

You can see the little one's last two cakes here and here

This month my youngest brother asked for a pumpkin pinata cake for his 8th birthday and I have to say it's been one of my favourites to make. I managed to shape it entirely out of cake using standard cake tins; the inside was filled with jelly beans and layered with buttercream.
I wanted it to look magical, almost like it belonged in a fairytale, so I used strong colours and added little touches like the green twirls and pumpkin ''seeds''. The ''soil' was dark brown sugar.


I'm still working on my photography skills so please excuse these!
