Gathering Your Supplies
Before we dive into the details for making this sugary masterpiece, you’ll need to gather your supplies. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Frosting: Grab some white, orange, and yellow frosting. If you can’t find each color: buy white frosting and yellow and orange food coloring gel. Make your own orange and yellow frosting.
- Dipping Treats: You’ll want to have a variety of Halloween-themed and traditional foods to dip in the frosting, like cookies, Halloween Peeps, gummy eyeballs, and, of course, candy corn.
- A Large Board or Platter: Choose a board that’s big enough to arrange your dipping snacks and have some space for the creative part – frosting!
- Piping Bags and Tips: These will help you create those specific frosting shapes.
Let’s Get Frosty
Now, the fun part begins! Making a Candy Corn Frosting Board is all about layering colors and getting creative with your frosting design. Here’s a step-by-step guide:
1. Yellow Base
Use the yellow frosting to create the bottom of the candy corn. Don’t worry about making it perfect; a basic trapezoid-like shape is a good model to aim for.
2. Orange Middle Section
Using a piping bag with a large round tip, or you can even spread the frosting out with a spoon. Create an orange layer above the yellow frosting. Start from the center and work your way outward.
3. White Crown
Repeat the same process with white frosting, though this time aim for a triangular shape. This gives your frosting board that classic candy corn appearance.
4. Decorate Away
Now comes the fun part – decorating! You can use your Halloween-themed snacks to add to the final look of your board. Get creative with candy eyeballs, Peeps, and cookies. A sprinkle of candy corn here and there is a great finishing touch.
5. Arrange on the Board
Once your board is beautifully frosted and decorated, it is ready to serve.
Tips and Tricks
Here are some extra tips to ensure your Candy Corn Frosting Board is a sweet success:

- Get the Kids Involved: This is a fantastic activity to do with your little goblins. Let them have a go at frosting and decorating.
- Storage: If you’re making this ahead of time, you can store it in the fridge, but remember to take it out a bit before serving to let the frosting soften for dipping.
