Making a Fun Fall Cake
I’ve got a boxed cake mix, and I’m not afraid to use it.
I had this idea, while eating a handful of candy corn, that I should make a cake that resembles a candy corn. Am I the only one who loves candy corn? Seriously, it’s pretty close to addictive. Or, maybe that’s just me. Or candy corn is evil, that’s possible right? Evil little kernels of sugar… compelling me to eat them and make cakes in their image.
Just say it’s possible, it’ll make me feel better…….
I had a box of cake mix, yes I use boxed cake mix from time to time. Let’s just say, if the sale price is good…I consider buying it. It’s great for a quick cake from time to time.
Here’s what I did.
Remove 2 cups of cake batter and add 5 drops of yellow food coloring to make your yellow batter.
Add 5 drops of yellow food coloring and 2 drops of red food coloring to the remaining batter to make orange.
Place the orange colored batter on top of the non-colored batter.
Place the yellow batter on top of the orange batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 min.
Cool, then add icing. Cut before you take a picture, you know because you want the cake more than you want a good picture.
Enjoy your candy corn-ish cake. The colors are so bright I had a hard time with the pictures, but the yellow and orange really POP!
