Recipe Box, “Corn on the Cob” Chocolate Butterscotch Chip Cake

Oh how I wish this was my idea~ this incredibly brilliant creative idea~ but sadly no    😥

I first saw this idea on oh so smart and talented Mary’s HomeisWheretheBoatis and thought it was the cutest thing ever

DSC_0047

It has been on my wanttodolist for a looooooong time

DSC_0009

I actually planned to make her cupcakes for one of the Family Reunion parties but ran out of time

I did buy the candy and had a new cake recipe idea so I decided to make this “corn on the cob” for our July 4th weekend

DSC_0010

I started with a decadent chocolate-butterscotch chip batter

DSC_0011

and baked it in a 9″ x 13″ dish

DSC_0012

I thought I could just cut it in half and then put the two halves together and trim it into a corn cob shape

DSC_0013

Hahahahahaha, anyway…

DSC_0029

Surely frosting will help 🙂

a nice thick buttercream

Put the cake on a piece of parchment to keep the surrounding surface clean, you can always trim it away later

DSC_0032

I used a long narrow board for serving

DSC_0033

I wasn’t too worried about the crumbs in the icing because they would get covered up

DSC_0035

I started with a line of corn across the middle and worked from there

randomly alternating the “buttered popcorn” and “lemon” flavored Jelly Bellies

DSC_0037

Slice taffy in half and flatten with your fingers to form “butter pats”

DSC_0038

DD kept saying, “those butter pats [taffy] are really freaking me out…”

DSC_0047

I thought my SIL was going to pass out when he saw this cake~he is all about anything sweet~so cake topped with icing and candy pretty much rendered him speechless

DSC_0050

I used fresh corn shucks for presentation

DSC_0045

You can keep the shucks fresh in a plastic produce bag in the refrigerator and then use them to garnish the cake right before serving, as they will dry out quickly

This cake will definitely be the talk of any summer gathering!

    Jenna, Your corn on the cob takes the cake! Love your presentation with the husks! I’m not much of a jelly bean fan EXCEPT for the buttered popcorn flavor, they are addictive! Thanks for the fun and shout out {blush}… Hope your 4th was delicious! 🙂

  2. Goodness that’s amazing- how creative! You designed it so well and the little corn husks next to it make you take a double take as to whether it’s a real ear of corn or not! I have a sweet tooth and this looks too good!
