I have a Halloween Theme show today, and I made a "Candy Corn Cake" to bring to the host. I used our cake pans and checkerboard inserts (and various other tools) to create the white, orange and yellow rings, and then I frosted accordingly. I only used 1 cake mix so it is only a 2 layer cake. Once I cut it I hope I remember to take a photo of the inside and I'll share that later. I took a few photos and wanted to share.

I am very proud of myself as I do not consider myself a baker so this should prove ANYONE can do this! LOL:D

very cute.. do you think if i tried this in the batter bowl it would have more of a candy corn shape?
You could certainly try! The top would be a little flat, but you could say the "tip fell off" or was eaten (LOL). I would put white in first, then carefully layer orange, and then top with yellow. I used the cake pan b/c I saw a photo from a email of one similar and it uses quite a few products.

One tip I'd like to share is make white cake, when finished with the white color, tint yellow and save enough for yellow and then tint to orange and use. It saves a step or 2.

Let us know how it turns out!

Missy~

How much of the cake mix did you have to leave white, and tint for the middle ring, and then for the outside ring? I really want to make this cake!

PLEASE post your "inside" picture and any tips for creating this cake, thanks!

Inside Photos

OK, the cake went faster than I could operate so the inside is not the most desirable of photos (plus I had to lesson the quality to upload so I'm not sure if it will look great on here). Anyway, here it is. Everyone loved it and said it was quite tasty (I haven't tried it yet... maybe for breakfast:angel: )

This is how I made it, and I'm sorry I didn't actually write down the amounts. I'll be making it again so I'll take better notes! :confused: From memory:
For the white part, I used about 1 1/2 scoops using the large scoop; about 5 scoops using the large scoop for the orange; and about 7-8 scoops of the yellow. Again this is memory so my numbers be off. I used a plain white cake mix (only 1 for a 2 layer cake) and added 1/4 cup of flour (this was the recommendation from the use and care card for a checkerboard cake), and then followed the box directions. For the icing I used one of those big containers of the whipped white frosting (may have been vanilla). I totally eyeballed the icing so I am absolutely no help there!

Recommendations: maybe use all 3 scoops next time as the large was a little difficult to scoop into the 2 outer rings. You will need to use a scrapper to help get the cake mix around the rings as well. Also, drop the pan on the counter a couple of times to even out the rings before you pull the insert out.

I hope that helps and enjoy! It was definitely a show stopper!

it is a suburb of Richmond, only 10 minutes away as the crow flies but worlds away as far as traffic, crime and the like!
I love the cake and am going to have to give my cake insert another try just to see how this turns out!

Great job on the cake, Missy! I love it! I'm going to have to make this for my kids' Harvest Festival at school - it will get a LOT of attention at the bake sale!! :)

Meg - my sister lives in C-field, too - wish she still lived closer to Philly, but oh, well. I still haven't done a show for her yet (just catalog shows!). I'll have to schedule a weekend down there with her and set up a show with her, huh?? :)

This cake is TOO cool! I just got our cake pans with the insert. I had no idea that you could do a ring with it... I only thought you could do the checkerboard! Thanks for sharing!

I hear you on the traffic...we're a suburb of DC...5th worst county in the nation for commuting/traffic. Fun, fun!

Good luck with the cake insert...I'll probably try my hand a few other ideas...time will tell as I'm not a big baker.
