My daughter's 11th birthday theme was "Candylicious" I created a cake based off a few ideas I saw on the website. I didn't want to add tons of candy. But wanted it to look very colorful & sweet. Decorating was very easy. I baked 2 - 10 inch cakes & 2-6 inch cakes. I used a 8 inch cake separator to stabilize the 6 inch cakes from sliding. Neon Twizzlers were added to the bottom for piping & soft Life Savers were added to the top. 2 lollipops added to the top & curling ribbon. After I was done my three year old took a huge chunk out of the cake & ate it. so i had to fill in with 2 tablespoons of icing. Nobody even knew until I told them.
A friend of mine loves butterfinger candy bars, so for her birthday I decided to give her a butterfinger cake. I used two loaf pans, leveled them off and cut off two ends. I used white icing died yellow and blue. Instead of writing "fun size" or "king size" I chose to write "Cake Size" And I decided to change the words underneath the candy bar to be descriptive words for the girl I made it for.
Also, instead of net wt. I wrote net. yrs. and put her age beside it. I hope to do more candy bars in the future since this one was so much fun and everyone LOVED it.
I had to make a "quick and easy" cake for my sons's 11th birthday today (we have a very busy day - it's election day, our favourite football team is playing in our hometown, and we have lots of family to catch up with for the birthday). I'm making another cake for his party next week, but wanted something simple but effective for today. His sister (9) and I made up a packet caramel mud cake recipe (his favourite) and his sister decorated it with his favourite new treats Cadbury Caramello Nibbles - yum! He's very impressed and can't wait to share it with family at lunchtime!
This Candy Barrel Cake was chocolate cake, frosted with chocolate peanut butter frosting, ringed with Kit Kat candies, and topped with Reese's Pieces candy.
It is the simplest cake to make, just be sure to hollow out the top of the cake to below the top of the Kit Kats, so that the candies on top stay confined. I also spread some frosting on the top after cutting it out to keep the candies secure.
Wrap a ribbon around to help anchor the Kit Kats, and you've got a great party cake.
I baked this candy birthday cake for a special girl. I baked two 10 inch round cakes, and two 8 inch round cakes.
The top cake was a vanilla flavor, and the bottom one was a chocolate flavor, both of them with a chocolate filling. For the candies I used fondant in different colors, as well for the candy ropes. For the sugar drops I used a real candy.
