The Partiologist: The Pumpkin Patch!

The Pumpkin Patch!

What do you do when you see a cute inexpensive little pumpkin ice cube tray?  You buy it.  I could hardly wait to get home a make ice cubes Mini Oreo Chocolate Covered Pumpkins!  Sometimes when I get something in my mind, it doesn't go as planned.  This time it went as planned and The Pumpkins were growing faster than I could harvest!

Chocolate Pumpkins

A Mini Oreo was nestled inside each pumpkin!
Here's the simple procedure.  No down time.
 Wilton Orange Candy Melts.
Pumpkin Ice Cube Tray ($1.00 from the Dollar Store)
Green frosting, fondant and a leaf cutter.
Melt orange candy melts and fill the bottom of pumpkin, add Mini Oreo.
Add brown candy melt or fondant stem.
Refrigerate until firm and pop out of tray.
Decorate with vines and leaves.

After they've been picked from the patch, here is a cute way to package them.
 Who wouldn't love an Oreo chocolate pumpkin??

I heard through the grapevine that while hanging out in a patch for all those months, some pumpkins fell in love.
And they lived happily ever after!
Using my punch, (remember the Punch?) I cut out orange card stock wrappers with my Cricut and placed the black face on the wrappers.
Cut green fondant Leaves using a pie crust cuter.
Make green fondant rope with clay gun.
 Wrap the green fondant rope around the end of a wooden spoon to get curls.
Make the chocolate stem by rolling fondant between fingers.
 Add a few lines to the stem with a toothpick.

  11. Love the pumpkin oreos. I was thinking either truffles or something chocolate covered as soon as I read the 'ice cube' part. Sweet brains! I haven't seen any pumpkin ice cube trays here so I'mma little jealous. Although I did manage to find a silicone halloween tin! The stalks and the green curly vines are awesome too - all in the details. :)

    Love Mr & Mrs Jack O' lantern too. The wrappers are cool too.
