Candy Corn Cake

Hey everyone! It's what's inside that makes this cake special! You place a simply decorated cake on the table, but when you cut into it, the Halloween magic begins!

Gorgeous colors mimic the candy corn, I used Wilton Icing Colors Gel.

I used a checker board cake pan. The idea for the cake came from Wilton's site, 
this is how their's looked, instructions here:

I think using yellow and orange Food Coloring Sprays for the icing coloring would be adorable too.

  7. Really cute cake. Perfect for a cake walk for the fall fair next weekend.

    Sorta of a question here - I made a Elmo cake last Friday for my son's 14th b-day (his request!) and used Wiltons Christmas Red to color my fabulous Buttercream Frosting. This was my first time using Wilton icing color - it totaly changed the taste of the icing - it was NASTY! Does Wilton coloring always change the taste? Cake looked adorable, but it ended up being thrown in the trash! Just wondering if this has happen to you?

  11. That came out great! It looks delicious. I like the white icing, save the color for inside.

    I got the note from the witches. Earl is fine, don't worry!

  14. This is fabulous! What a wonderful treat for young and old alike. Great share. I love candy corn and this would be fun to make, but I'll have to double the candy, i'll have to have some for nibbles..........
