Pumpkin Carving Tips

Pumpkin Carving Tips

  1. Don’t cut out the top of the pumpkin to scoop out seeds. Cut out the bottom instead. This way, the pumpkin doesn’t cave in on itself and it lasts longer. Also, you can just set the pumpkin over a lit candle or light without having to stick your hand inside.
  2. Sprinkle some cinnamon inside the pumpkin after carving. The heat from the light or candle will make it smell like pumpkin pie.
