Delicious Fall Dessert

I first saw this idea on Pinterest. Thank you, Key Ingredient!

I used their recipe for the chocolate cake and was pleasantly surprised with the taste. Adding pudding and chocolate chips to a box mix really makes a difference. Wow! I also followed the icing recipe except I added the juice of several clementines. Why, because they were sitting on the counter and I wondered what if? It made me feel like a baking mad scientist adding a secret ingredient. Well, the powdered sugar masked the orange flavor but at least I knew it was in there… Whaahaahaa!

Then I got even more creative and decided to add candy corn in between the two cut layers forming the pumpkin.

I had a lot of leftover cake parts because it took me several tries to slice each bundt cake evenly so the two top halves would match.

I decided to come up with my own creations with the extra parts. That’s Carmine Clementine the chocolate cake monster.

When I grew tired of making pumpkins and creations from cake pieces I decided the simple bundt cakes were the way to go.
