My daughter wanted a Candy Land 4th Birthday Party so I ran with it!!! I made this cake using two 9x13 and two 9' round cake pans. I leveled the tops of them out then I stacked the two 9x13 cakes on top of each other then stacked the two 9' round cakes on top of each other then on top of the two 9x13 cakes.
I used the pieces of cake that I cut off to fill in any gaps there were and then I used a butter cream frosting to crumb coat it all. I put the cake in the freezer then I took it out the morning before the party so that I could do the final frosting and decorate it. I tried to use some candy that is used in the Candy Land game but I also included any candy that I had. I cut out squares of fondant and placed them around the cake (just like the game board).
I made this Candy Land Birthday Cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday. I thought it was very appropriate considering 3 is the age when board games usually start being played.
I used two 9x13 pans, one chocolate and one white, and frosted the entire thing in buttercream icing tinted with a few drops of green food coloring. I used Starburst for the path (but unfortunately couldn't find any blue or green). I used Reese's Cups topped with chocolate frosting and filled ice cream cones with vanilla frosting and topped with sprinkles. I randomly made mountains of vanilla icing as filler and different types of sprinkles to differentiate the different areas of the cake.
I would definitely recommend making a trial cake first if you've never made a cake before! But this one is fairly simple, just takes a little time to do the decorating! Definitely a big hit with all of the kids, though!
My 6yr old daughter loves the game candyland so I decided to make this cake for her. I made the fondant out of marshmallow and powder sugar. I also made some gum paste out of confectioners sugar, glucose and gum tex for the characters.I made all the characters 1 week before decorating each character took me about 1 to 2 hours to make. I baked the cakes and frosted them and put them in the refrigerator 1 day before decorating. Decorating was the fun part.To decorate the cake it took me about 7 hrs (but so worth it)
This was my first fondant cake and I take great pride on it since everything on it was made out of scratch :).
