Cuisine Kathleen's November bundt challange

Yea our annual Bundt Challenge is here again thanks to our wonderful Host Kathleen from Cuisine Kathleen

I pulled out my three mini bundts that I had just no extra money to purchase anew one besides living by myself what or whom  am I to bake for?

These are the new Better Homes and Gardens plates I got at Walmart and couldn't resist.Somebody please stop me! 

I used a leaf pattern on the glassware to match with the leaf pattern I have in the plates.I sprayed and floured  my bundt pans and had a real hard time getting the cakes out.

I used green as my neutral color and only wanted a little brown in this table.

and I get it in the brown cord once'd think I would have paid attention to the cord hanging down again DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I gathered my bundts and put them together in a basket with plaid pumpkins(I told you I love plaid for all seasons) and used them for my centerpiece. 
part of my stash of stack-able boxes were brought in here mainly for a different texture than just pumpkins again.

Green and orange napkins the charger is brown not purple sorry again about the lite.But the apt is dark to begin with let alone it's been raining for 10 days and everything is dark and gloomy outside. Lets just say and I will admit I am not the best not even a runner up on being a Photographer.

I should of named this post leaves and bundts but wanted to give Kathleen her credit.

so here comes the assembly of my spice towers cake with caramel sauce and mini toffee bits.

 My roomie was traveling and I encouraged her and her boyfriend to eat them on their journey
The spice cake smelled so wonderful baking. My roommate had asked me to do spun sugar over the top of each cake and make it cascade down or sitting with a nest of sugar on top. Due to the high intensity of moisture in the air the sugar collapsed so I made home made caramel sauce in stead.

 I had only made two place settings so only made two cakes (the rest is in the freezer) they are a little bit more than a single cupcake  in size, then a two bite then one biter, but the spice and caramel paired nicely with each other.

 the little black  bundt is a new addition I got while killing time to go to my sons wedding back in August

It was all about the bundts this week so I haven't given a clue as to what dinner on these plates was going to be,huh let me figure this one out.

I added the candy pumpkin and candy corn strictly for photo props and the pumpkin looks like he's leaning south there.Well as always
