Who doesn’t just love pumpkins? Who finds that they are inspired by just the sight of them? And who doesn’t just love a good pumpkin dessert? You don’t? My eyes narrow suspiciously. I shrug. I eat your dessert.
Here are three of the ways I’ve been inspired by these spherical orange wonders.
I. A Hole (or Several) in One
Take a largish pumpkin. Note that you may have one or two lying around the house. Using colorful wooden golf tees, pound a series of holes around the stem. Remove the tees and place them in a small plastic cup or bowl next to the pumpkin along with a child-sized plastic hammer. My little gals had so much fun with this!

II. Happy Pumpkin Cake to You!
All you do is bake two bundt cakes and put them together to make your pumpkin. An ice cream cone serves as your stem.

No Autumn’s complete without them.
