I have to show off this massive cake Wyatt and I made just before his big party. My first thought was to buy a plain half sheet from Costco and put all the candy on it until I bought the candy. Wow, candy is lots of $$$ (can't say Paul will be a little upset) Then I thought I could save 10 bucks and make it myself. You can't tell but one of the 9/13 stuck to the pan and is in three pieces. I saved the cake by putting a pound of butter frosting on it which tasted just like the stores. It was so good my sweet tooth Mom Lesli loved it and asked if I bought it. I think that is one of the best compliments you can say to some one.
I used the new Candy Land board game as my model. We put on the top Sour Patch Kids, Now and Laters for the path, for the blue I cut Air Heads down to size, candy canes, mints, gum drops, gummy fruit, liquorish, Nutter Butters, chocolate Kisses, Rollos, peanut butter cups w/chocolate frosting, Dumb Dumb suckers, gum balls, a cut down ice cream cone with white frosting. I think I did a pretty good job for a novice.
This is the mess I had one hour before the party.
