1:12 Halloween Candy Corn Cake by Bon-AppetEats 1:12 Halloween Candy Corn Cake by Bon-AppetEats
1:12 checkerboard candy corn cake.

This is what I do when I can't fall asleep at night. :P

I've seen these cakes around and have wanted to try the checkerboarding inside. I really love how they look. :D

Cake is just a tiny bit over 3/4" in diameter and made from polymer clay.

Yes and I actually thought it was cake at first! I was like "Mmm if I had you in front of me right now you wouldn't last five seconds."

If you search how to make a checkerboard cake it'll tell you. You can even use the technique for the real cake since it's the same. :)

i think a tutorial on how to make the checkerboard pattern would be very interesting. Did you just cut even sized blocks, stack them up, gentky pat them together, and then cut the circle shape out to make the cake?

If you look for polymer clay checkerboard cake tutorial on YouTube, the first video that pops up is where I learned how to do it. :) You could even search for how they make the real version of this - its the same technique.

The checkerboarding is amazing! :la:

Do you just know where to cut a slice so that it looks like that, or do you paint it on later... or what?
Or is it a trade secret? ;)

I looked up how they're made... what a neat idea! I never thought of it that way, which explains why I couldn't wrap my head around it. :)
