Yield 8-10 servings


2 boxes Pillsbury™ Yellow Cake Mix
2 cups water
1 cup oil
6 eggs
3 tubs Pillsbury™ White or Vanilla Frosting (or Filled Pastry Bag)
Orange and yellow gel food dye
1 bag candy corn


Something round like a jar
Frosting spatula


Cake Preparation Directions:

Step 1

Set oven to 350°F. Coat bottom of 8-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 2

In a large bowl, beat 1 box cake mix, oil, water, and eggs per package instructions.

Step 3

Pour batter into 2 8-inch cake pans and bake for 34-38 minutes.

Four-layer Cake Decoration Preparation Directions:

Step 1

Once the cakes have cooled, slice layers horizontally to create 2 layers.

Step 2

Use a small circle cutter, jar or small bowl to cut out centers out of 3 layers only.

Step 3

Assemble cake on cake stand or serving plate by stacking the 3 cake layers with center holes, and spread frosting between each layer.

Step 4
Before adding last cake layer, fill center hole with candy completely.

Step 5
Add your top layer. Frost and decorate the outside. Dye one tub of frosting orange and another yellow, then transfer to piping bags to pipe a ring of color around the cake. Use a frosting spatula to smooth out the layers, then top with more candy corn.

Step 6
Refrigerate until ready to serve, then slice carefully!
