Kathleen from Cuisine Kathleen is having a bundt cake challenge this month at her Let's Dish! party, with a coffee or tea setting. This is just perfect for me and I set my tea outside on the patio. You can choose a mug or a teacup to go with our pumpkin bundt cakes. You can check out the party on November 12th, starting at 7 pm.
I have my "new" antique scale to hold the baby bundt. A wooden bowl is filled with gourds, pine cones and dried corn. The leaf tealight holder is from the Dollar Tree and my pewter Williamsburg teapot was given to me from my late Great Aunt Kitty.
I used the recipe from my Colonial Pumpkin Bars to make the baby bundts. You can find the recipe here. The cake recipe worked out so well in my mini bundt cake pans. I tried to decorate them like the Nothing Bundt Cakes company does. Have you ever tried them? They are so good, but I have to say, I like mine better!! I put the icing in a plastic bag, cut one corner off and squeezed the icing onto the cakes. Since I had some pumpkin candies, I decorated the tops with those. I'm serving them on my Mikasa pumpkin platter.
My special "Blessing" mug is perfect for today's tea for I have a new little blessing in my life! My youngest son and dear daughter-in-law had a BABY GIRL on November 5th! This makes my seventh grandchild. I have so much to be grateful for.
I am taking two of these baby bundt cakes along with a special meal for the new little family to celebrate the birth of their little pumpkin.
Here are the mini bundt pans, which come in handy for so many cakes, muffins, quick breads, etc. I seem to use these and a set of six mini bundts that are like a muffin pan, for most of my baking. They make for wonderful gift giving. I prefer them over my bigger bundt pans, which include the Nordic Heart and the Holiday tree. Another recipe to try in a bundt pan is my Chocolate Pistachio Cake, which can be found here.
