Last year, I made this candy corn cake for Halloween and I had a BLAST making it!
But, when I went through my archives today, I noticed that I DIDN’T post 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!
This cake is as EASY as it gets.
