Candy Land Cake

I found a picture on-line, and made this cake for my daughter's 2nd grade cake contest.

We bought all kinds of fun, bright, and colorful candy. (Take a picture of the candy land game board with you when buying candy. It gives you ideas on what to buy.)

Candy used:

  • Starbursts (all flavors)
  • Peppermints (mini-candy canes if you can find them)
  • Dum-Dum suckers
  • M&Ms
  • Tootsie Rolls
  • Mini Reese's peanut butter cups
  • Ice cream cones
  • Licorice
  • Sprinkles

We baked a 11x13" cake. Used yellow cake mix (from a box), and added in vanilla pudding mix to make it extra moist. (Just follow the instructions on the cake box. No special way to bake.)

We frosted the whole cake white using store-bought vanilla frosting mix. Next we made the grass with frosting decorating bags and tips over 2/3 of the cake. (We mapped it out in our minds before we started.)

We then used a flower-type tip to make the white winter land area (bottom right corner). We used a wave-type tip to do the sky (blue upper right corner).

We used Starbursts for the trail. Started laying them down, then worked out the rest of the sections after the trail was done. Next created the winter land area with peppermints and red sprinkles (you can use mini candy canes too).

Then we made the mud pit (end of the trail). We used 5 cones. Cut cones to make them smaller and used frosting to top off. Added chocolate sprinkles and Dum-Dum suckers to look like cherries. The mud area are melted Tootsie Rolls and a few mini Reese's peanut butter cups.

We added M&Ms at the end of the rainbow trail. Place more Dum-Dums on the blue sky area and gum drops on the far left.

To give it a special touch, we added purple flowers (used flower tip) to the grassy areas. We put peppermints along the edges to give it more color and uniqueness.

My daughter won 1st place with her Candyland cake.
