I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a huge fan of Halloween. I hate scary movies – I can’t even handle the commercials for horror movies – and I don’t like creepy crawly things (did you see they just discovered a puppy-sized spider??..think about that for a second. A puppy-sized spider.). But this year I have been totally loving some of the food-related Halloween ideas that I’ve been seeing. Some spooky, some adorable, and some just really really fun. So last week I stumbled across Yahoo! Food and discovered these super cute I Scream Sandwitches from Martha Stewart. Sandwitch..get it? Anyways..I started to get the hankering to make a little Halloween treat to celebrate the holiday. And then I ran across this crazy fun Candy Corn Tuxedo Cake from Sprinkle Bakes. With a little tweaking – and a lot of butter – this baby was born:
Fun, right? Two things I discovered while making this cake:
- There are a lot of tricks to baking cakes..so I’m going to share with you some of the ones I learned.
- Making a cake like this is not a simple endeavor. So hats off to anyone that makes these on a regular basis. I am impressed.
