Jack O Lantern Bundt Cake

I received this Buttery Pound Cake recipe from a friend, Cathy Reynolds. My son added the face and drew the pumpkin leaves. One of these days I'll post cakes that my sons decorate. They are quite the cake decorators. I made two bundt cakes, tinted the batter orange and put them together for a pumpkin cake.
2 c. sugar
1 c. butter, softened
5 eggs
1/4 c. sour cream
1/3 c. milk
2 1/2 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
Heat oven to 350°. Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often until creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Continue beating, adding 1 egg at a time until well mixed. Add sour cream, milk and vanilla. Continue beating and scraping bowl often until well mixed. Reduce speed to low and add flour and salt just until moistened. Put batter into well-greased and floured bundt or # 10 tube pan. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes, run a knife around edges and dump out onto cooling rack. Trim top and put two cakes together, top to top, for a pumpkin.
