How to create the pumpkin bumps:

Insert the needle up through the center and pull it out on the other side, wrap it around the pumpkin back to the bottom, stick the needle back up through the center and pull it tight so that it squeezes the pumpkin. Continue wrapping it around so that you end up with 6 bumps.


Create the STEM with some brown yarn by working 4 chs, 1 sl st into the 2nd ch from the hook, 2 sl st (3); F/O and leave a long strand of yarn to attach the stem to the pumpkin.



Sew the pumpkin to the center part of the whipped cream.

Pin the whipped cream to the top of the cupcake to secure it in place and then use the long strand of yarn to sew it on.
