Pretty Sunset Pumpkin Cake
I used the sunset term for this beauty because it totally reminds me of a sunset! I’m loving the white pumpkins on the bright watercolor cake which has an amazing contrast.
Pumpkin Emerald Cake
The emerald color is a beautiful color base for these pretty pumpkins! I’m loving that the pumpkins were also piped with another tip.
Golden Buttercream Pumpkins
Here’s another fantastic cake with pretty golden pumpkins and stripes!
Striped Pumpkin Cake
With this trend, you can be creative with different colors. There is no limit on colors, so this darling cake is the perfect example of how brown works well with the pumpkins.
Vine Pumpkin Cake
The colors are unconventional for Autumn/Fall/Thanksgiving but absolutely works with the trend! It’s gorgeous.
Pumpkin Sheet Cake
So lovely. You can even use the 1M pumpkin trend on a sheet cake, so it’s not limited to cakes only! The pumpkins go perfectly with other buttercream textures.
White Pumpkin Cupcakes
Very elegant. Here’s another example of why the trend works so well. It’s also popular for cupcake decorating!
Thanksgiving Pumpkin Cake
The cake is so exquisite! I love the golden stem on the pumpkin.
Autumn Harvest Pumpkins
I originally asked her if I could use her cake but I didn’t realize the tip used on the cake wasn’t 1M but I still wanted to use her cake. It’s a good example of how you can use any tip to create pumpkins on a cake. This delightful cake reminds me of Autumn Harvest.
