Pumpkin Patch Carrot Cake

This year, I wanted to create a fun Halloween cake that wasn’t too spooky. After our trip to an authentic pumpkin patch I was inspired to make a pumpkin patch Halloween cake. It was easy, a little messy and a lot of fun for the girls! I used a boxed cake mix and some cream cheese frosting and baked two 8″ round cakes and frosted them with white cream cheese frosting to give it a good base coat so the cake color wouldn’t show through. Slowly, the girls and I started to add the ingredients as shown in order below!



  • Boxed cake mix, I used Duncan Hines Decadent Carrot Cake mix
  • Cream Cheese frosting, about 2 cups, one cup white & one cup Orange
  • Orange food coloring
  • Crushed oreos
  • Parsley with stems trimmed off
  • Baby carrots
  • Toy wagon
  • Toothpick+hot glue+cardstock to make a small flag “have a BOOtiful Halloween!”



  • Simply frost both layers of the cake and put it together
  • Frost entire cake with orange colored frosting
  • Sprinkle with crushed oreos



  • Create rows of parsley as vines for the pumpkins


  • Poke baby carrots into the cake as pumpkins!


  • Chop a couple carrots to a smaller size as pumpkins in the wagon and top with a small flag if you want
  • Enjoy the cake without the parsley! Ours tasted great the whole family loved it!!
