No time? No problem!
I’m always trying to impress friends and family with a fancy treat. However with kids and working full-time, I’m sure you all can relate, who has time??? Well guess what?
These Fall Candy Corn Parfaits look like I spent hours and hours baking in the kitchen, but they were actually super simple. They took me about 20 minutes total to make. Can you believe it? Don’t tell my friends and family though. 🙂
Love is the Main Ingredient
I want to dedicate this recipe to my friend Courtney’s Grandma who recently passed away. As Courtney was going through her grandma’s things, she came across these beautiful parfait glasses pictured here and gave them to me. I was so grateful to receive such a meaningful gift. These parfait glasses are over 50 years old. I will never forget where they came from and the love that was shared using them.
Such a beautiful glass always holds something delicious and attractive. Therefore our tasty choice was to fill it with our Fall Candy Corn Parfait recipe. It can be made for kids or even a fancy dinner party with friends or family. For those Candy Corn lovers out there, the yellow cake and whipped cream is such a perfect complement to the chewy candy. This dessert is for all ages and again, it’s super easy to make. Let me show you how…
The Fall Candy Corn Parfait Process
First step is to make the yellow cake. If you have the time to make a cake from scratch, it’s always worth it. See these cake recipes for some options: White Cake and Moist Chocolate Cake. However, if you are crunched on time, there is nothing wrong with a cake from a box. I baked the cake in a half sheet baking pan. You might be thinking that it will overflow, but it won’t I promise. A cake box recipe has the perfect amount of batter to fit into the pan. I always line my cake pans with parchment paper to prevent the cake from sticking. This is super important for this recipe because we will be cutting out circles later.
Once the cake has baked, set aside to cool. Prepare the Whipped Cream. Once again, if you are crunched on time, Cool Whip is a good option.
I used the top of the parfait glass to cut out circles in the cake. As a result, it ensures it will be the perfect size for the glass. Place the cut circle in one of the parfait glasses. Next, pipe the whipped cream on top, and sprinkle with candy corn. Repeat until the parfait glass is full. Then repeat for all desired parfait glasses.
Super easy right? Let me know how it turned out for you in the comments below. I love hearing your stories.
