I've always loved candy corn. Let me rephrase that, I've always loved the LOOK of candy corn!! The colors are fun and bright and a perfect color scheme for a fun Halloween party. As I was planning this little set up, I came across the company Cakest in a mom group I'm part of. When I saw the concept of what they offered, I couldn't believe how perfect it was for moms! You can select from a range of different DIY cake kits that fit your needs, and when I found the monster kit, I knew it was perfect for my Candy corn inspired bash!
Cake stand by Amalfi Decor
When I received it in the mail, I was extremely impressed with how complete the DIY cake kit was. It literally brought everything I needed to make the cake from beginning to end (Minus perishables and ingredients you would typically have a home anyway). I haven't baked in a while so my baking pans are non existent right now. The kit even brought disposable cake pans!
This kit includes:
- 2 disposable cake pans
- 1 cake mix
- 2 small bags of black and yellow fondant for the details
- 1 small bucket of orange fondant
- 2 small circle cutters
- 1 spatula
- 1 rolling pin
- 1 cake board
- Instructions on how to bake cake, decorate, and assemble
- Template sheet with accurate sizing of decor pieces
I baked the cake first and let cool for a few hours. While the cake was cooling, I made the decorations. The instructions were very easy to read and follow. Using the template sheet, I was able to cut out all the pieces easily. After finishing all my pieces, I covered them with saran wrap to keep them sealed for decoration later.
Once I finished making the frosting, I followed the step by step on how to cover the cake with the Orange fondant. Picking the best side as my front, I was ready to now start assembling all my decor.
After the cake had been covered in Fondant, the assembling of the decorations was actually quite fast.
Voila!! I was done with my cake! It was so cute!!!!
I set it among all my candy corn decor table and couldn't you agree its the CUTEST Candy Corn Monster!?? Make sure you order your kit for halloween online on their website... Cakest!!
