hanging cake in the trees + printable pumpkin cake toppers

If you’ve been here long you know that I love a good dose of whimsical detailing in my designs. For the pumpkin harvest brunch I hung our bunt cakes up in the large swooping trees. A refreshing way to showcase party sweets + they were simple to cut down when it was time for eating.

To hang the cakes I turned upside down painted hat boxes, poked four holes on top and threaded thick twine through them. Each box was tied up in four places to the low hanging branches. Once balanced the cakes sat sweetly on top.

I topped each of the bunt cakes with a pumpkin harvest label to reveal the different fall flavors.

These labels would be a great addition to any fall celebration, download the labels by clicking below…

They print 8 to a page on landscape setting. Use them to liven up your own cake in a tree, dessert table, Halloween party, or even a Thanksgiving dinner (is it too early to say that?).

    Cute! I can envision my youngest son finding cake in a tree. eating it and then resourcefully using the brightly colored hat box as a tree swing, *sigh* A typical day in my life. :)

  16. This is such a fun idea. If only there were more trees around my NYC apartment! I wonder if the parks department frowns upon this sort of thing?
