It’s Halloween-time on The Kelly Clarkson Show this week and today I’m joining Kelly, Erin Andrews and Freida Pinto to make my mini bundt cake pumpkins.
Mini Bundt Cake Pumpkins on the Kelly Clarkson Show
I love this time of year! The fall colors, the fall flavors, the fall scents – they’re everything I live for. To celebrate the season, I visited the Kelly Clarkson Show to make my mini bundt cake pumpkins with Kelly, Erin Andrews, and Freida Pinto. I was so impressed with how well everyone did. These really are so easy to make.
The Best Pumpkin Cake Recipe
You’ll start by making mini bundt cakes with my Pumpkin Cake Recipe (just use the cake layer recipe). This recipe is so incredibly moist and flavorful. You can make it as a layered cake, these mini bundt cakes, or even a regular bundt cake. It’s so versatile.
Make sure to spray each mini bundt cake mold with nonstick spray and dust with flour to ensure your mini cakes come out easily. Bake the mini bundt cakes for about 15 to 20 minutes and then let cool completely before inverting onto a wire rack.
The Best Vanilla Buttercream Frosting Recipe
For the buttercream, we used my Vanilla Buttercream recipe, but you can pair this pumpkin cake with so many flavors:
Don’t forget to follow the instructions for making the best buttercream frosting:
- Sift your powdered sugar
- Use slightly cold butter and mix on its own for 2 to 3 minutes
- Use heavy whipping cream
- Beat for 5 minutes on medium-high speed
- Stir by hand to push out the air pockets
