My Failed Attempt to Make a Pumpkin Bundt Cake – Pinterest Fail

Image found here here

Have you ever spent hours on Pinterest looking around and come across something that you think is marvelous. You pin it on your own board and you know you are going to recreate it some day. This is how I felt when I came across the pin above. I saw it and just knew I had to make it.

The cake part turned out good. I was beyond ecstatic at this point. I knew I was going to make the perfect pumpkin cake just like in the photograph I pinned.

About 40 minutes later I realized that my beautiful bundt cake I pinned was not going to look like the cake I actually made. The icing would not turn orange no matter how much food coloring I added. It was either too yellow or too red and it ended up this coral/salmon hue which left me feeling like such a failure.

See how nice the inside looked though? It did taste good but it did not look like the Pinterest Inspiration photo.

I was so mad I decided to eat two pieces of cake. For spite.
