Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved this from start to finish! I made this for work. I recieved the checkerboard cake pan set for Christmas a year ago & I had not used it until Halloween. I think I was a little intimidated by it. Anyways, when I set it up & had all my colored batter ready, I spooned my batter into each section & pulled out the dividers. It worked like a charm! After baking, I iced the cake just as instructed & used some different edible decorations on the sides of the cake & arranged candy corns around the lip of the plate. It looked so cool & even better after it was cut. The pieces really looked like big candy corns! I was very happy & my co-workers loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake was SOOO easy and quick to make. I made three halloween cakes last year and this was by far the easiest to do and was gone first as everyone at the party wanted a piece of "Candy Corn." Using the batter divider ring for the first time can be intimidating especially when lifting it straight out with really shaky hands. Overall, a great "starter" recipe for someone looking for something quick, easy and cute for halloween.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was actually a fun cake to need to make sure that your colored batter doesn't leak into the seperators and using a ziploc bag works pretty good. I had some batter left over, try to color the batter evenly. Frosting the cake tests your wrist skills but its easy to cover up your mistakes, I got the sugar ghosts also which helped but it turned out pretty much like the picture which I was pleased and my son was also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake twice! Once for my son in law to take to work in a contest. He won!!! You have to be really careful when you take out the inserts to make sure that the colored cake batter doesn't run over. Other than that, it ws just a matter of making all the little stars on the cake and getting them lined up with the colors on the inside. Cute and tasted good too! Thanks for the idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Help from the grandkids slowed the process down a little....but it was great fun!!!! They could not believe that we were able to make a cake of 3 different colors. They have lots of plans for next Halloween! We had to make an adjustment to the style of icing the cake.....only one tip 16 and 2 grandkids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for a family get together in October. Everyone thought it was a very clever idea. This was a very easy cake to do especially using the checkerboard cake pans. I use this site quite often to get ideas for birthdays, holidays and "whatever".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for a halloween dinner party and it was a big hit. The guests were thrilled to see the inside matched the outside of the cake. Make sure to cut the cake into neat wedges to get the whole candy corn effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for my daughters school. I made the mistake of not making a perfect circle and it looked a little off. But they all loved it. I just used pumkins from the autum mix candies around the border.
