Candy corn is great as a garnish during the fall season in general, and Halloween in particular season.
EASY CANDY CORN GARNISHES
Cupcakes: Use it as a cupcake topping. Create a circle of candy corn kernels around the rim of the cupcake. You can stand one kernel in the middle of the cupcake.
Or create your own patterns. It’s a fun party activity or after-dinner dessert activity for kids.
Jack-O-Lantern Cake: Make a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and filling, and cover the sides with a mixture of candy corn and chopped nuts (if it’s a loaf cake, cover the top). Use the nuts to cover most of the cake and press in candy corn at intervals.
You can also use candy corn to make the eyes, nose and mouth of the Jack-O-Lantern, on the top of the cake.
Sundae: We love a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with hot chocolate sauce and sprinkled with candy corn.
Here’s a fun idea that decorates ice cream cones with candy corn.
You can eat them as is, the crunchy cones contrasting nicely with the soft corn “kernels.”
You can add a scoop of ice cream, or fill with pudding (vanilla works best).
Use them as a cake topper or a centerpiece for a cookie plate.
RECIPE: CANDY CORN CONES
Ice cream cones, sugar cone style
Royal icing (recipe)
Use a piping bag to pipe royal ice cream around the perimeter of the cone, an inch at a time. Quickly press in the candy corn. Start at the bottom (pointed end) of the cone.
Royal icing dries to the touch quickly, although a thin layer can take 4 to 6 hours to dry completely.
The process goes faster with a group: Enlist the family. Otherwise, do it in front of the TV and the task will go more quickly.
