Pumpkin patch cake with maple cream cheese icing
The addition of homemade pumpkin puree doesn’t add a strong flavour to this pumpkin patch cake but rather gives it a boost of moisture and a beautiful orange hue. The perfect bake for Halloween and the autumn season. Have a look at our Pumpkin Spice Latte cupcakes for more delicious inspiration!

Pumpkin patch cake with maple cream cheese icing

Servings: 4-6

Pumpkin patch cake topped with maple cream cheese icing and a piped pumpkin patch pattern

Ingredients

Pumpkin cake:
1 box NOMU MiniMakes Spiced Cake Batter Mix
2 large eggs
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup (80g) homemade pumpkin puree

Maple cream cheese icing:
40g softened butter, cubed
100g medium-fat plain cream cheese, cold
120g icing sugar, sifted
1/4 tsp NOMU ground cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup
Green and orange gel food colouring (optional)
Chocolate vermicelli sprinkles (optional)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease and line a 20cm round cake tin.

Whisk the eggs until foamy, then mix in the oil, milk and pumpkin puree until combined. Add the cake mix and whisk to form a smooth batter.

Transfer the batter to the prepared tin and bake for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through when tested with a skewer. Set aside to cool completely before icing.

To prepare the maple cream cheese icing, cream the butter with an electric hand mixer until soft, silky and paler in colour, about 3 minutes. Add the cream cheese and mix well until smooth and combined. Add the icing sugar, cinnamon and maple syrup and mix to form a thick, glossy icing – do not overmix otherwise your icing may become very soft.

If you want to decorate your cake with a pumpkin design, scoop a small amount of the icing into two ramekins and colour them orange and green (we used about 1/3 cup icing for orange and 3 tbsp for green). Place into piping bags fitted with round tips – a larger ~1cm one for the orange and a small 2mm tip for the green.

Dollop the remaining maple cream cheese icing on the cake and swirl over the surface using the back of a spoon. Pipe small pumpkin bodies using the orange icing and decorate with green tendrils. Finish with chocolate vermicelli sprinkles for stalks.

Keep the cake in the fridge until ready to serve.

While the piped pumpkin design is optional, it’s a super cute added touch if you have the time.
