Ingredients

  • 15.25 oz yellow boxed cake - baked and cooled
  • 2/3 cups vanilla frosting
  • 1 bag each yellow, orange and white candy melts

Instructions

  • Mix yellow box cake according to package directions, bake in 9x13 pan and let cool.
  • Crumble cake into a large bowl.
  • Add 2/3 cup frosting and mix together until all combined.
  • Place cake/frosting mixture onto a parchment lined tray and form a square cake, about 1 inch tall.
  • Place in freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Cut cake into 24 equal triangle pieces. (I work with only half at a time so I cut them into 12 pieces).
  • Place back in freezer.
  • Melt yellow, candy melts in a glass bowl for 1 minute in the microwave.
  • Stir candy and place back in microwave for 30 more seconds.
  • Continue this until all candy melts are completely melted.
  • To make the candy melts a more smooth consistency (easier for coating), add vegetable oil, shortening or paramount crystals (found at specialty stores) a little at a time to the candy melts and stir until dissolved.
  • Remove candy corn shaped cake bites from freezer and dip bottom part of cake bite in the yellow candy melts.
  • Shake gently and place on tray.
  • Place them back into the freezer.
  • Melt the orange candy melts and continue the same process of dipping the cake bites and then repeat with the white candy melts.
  • Keep them chilled until ready to serve.
