Halloween Candy Corn Cake

Last year, I made this candy corn cake for Halloween and I had a BLAST making it!

For some reason, it was still sitting as a DRAFT in my blog…YIKES!

This cake is NOT really made of candy corns.

I just used the yellow, orange and white colors of candy corns to INSPIRE the cake design.

Honestly, I don’t think I have ever used all those VIBRANT colors together on a cake…

But in the end, it all worked out for the BEST!
