    KateL's Note:

    Entered for safe-keeping. From Woman's World 11/10/08, this decorated cake is a centerpiece, using golden yellow food color, Tootsie Roll Midgees, Marzipan fruits, nonpareil-coated gummi raspberry candies, candy corn and Mellowcreme pumpkins, with a waffle ice cream corn to form the horn of plenty. The Tootsie Roll Midgees offer a dark contrast to show off the colors of the other candies, and are shaped a variety of ways: rope, braid, and leaves. Note: If the Tootsie Rolls are too firm to roll, place them on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on HIGH in 5-second intervals until pliable. Cooking time is for cake layers per your favorite recipe.
