Indian Corn Cake

"A great decorated center piece cake for your fall dinner party. The idea came from a 1998 Crafting Traditions magazine. It is made from 1 9" round yellow cake. The recipe calls for a bought cake mix and frosting, but I don't see why you couldn't make it from scratch. The 1/2 cup of water and egg is what my boxed cake required. Just make cake per box instructions. Thanks goes out to LUv2BaKE for editting the photo. Please read through the directions for all the material. Prep time is frosting and decorating time."

    These cakes were easy, fun and even delicious. My 10yo sister and I had a great time putting these together, and the whole family enjoyed eating them. Maybe I will use a colored frosting that will blend with the Reese's better. I used real corn stocks.

    My grandkids like rice krispie treats so I will use that as my base instead of cake

    I had fun making these and my children were begging for more for several days afterwards. I used a Jiffy cake mix (it was the perfect size). It was a little difficult to ice the cake on the cut edges, but since you cover with candy, the messy edges were fine. Thank you for a fun and tasty recipe!!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

For extra cash, we have a small herd of Texas Longhorns here in Ohio. We raise them for both show and beef. I go into withdrawal when we run out of our lean meat and have to buy the store bought meat. I have been involved in buckskinning (camping where tents, dress and everything conforms to pre 1840)for 15 years. We bought a motorhome last year so most of my camping has been modern style lately. My wife likes the conviences. I love nothing more than to sit around the camp fire all day and cook. If you run into me at a camp grounds, both modern and oldtime, bring your plate and hunger. There is always something on the fire. My rating system updated 8/06: When I first came to the Zaar, every recipe was great. I have become more critical 5 Stars - Fantastic recipe. I would pay for this dish in a restaurant and tell all my friends to try it. 4 Stars - Truely a great recipe that I would proudly serve to guests as is. May tweak a slightly. 3 Stars - So so. Didn't move us either way. Maybe a good basic recipe to build on or it may be be an item that doesn't normally grace our table. That will be stated. I may make again with changes. 2 Stars - Sorry nobody liked it. 1 Star - Don't know what went wrong, but something did. Nobody ate it. No clue what to do. <img < img src= "http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/FFF/completedbanner.gif"><img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/FFFFlag.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/chef3.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/beartag_1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/adopted_1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/FFF/Switzerland-FFF4.gif"> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a209/tlonghorn/banners/BBQ2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/BtoBHosts.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/CV.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd235/MidwestMaven/SpoiledPetbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w115/bugh8er/food%20and%20swaps/400035_d7f1b969-m3_1217872626.png" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
