My daughter and her friends loved my homemade Candyland birthday cake.
I placed one chocolate and one yellow sheet cake side by side and coated it all over with vanilla frosting. I placed the ice cream cones, representing the castle, on the cake first and then laid out the trail using starbursts. Regular and small peanut butter cups, with frosting piped on top, were used for the chocolate forest.
To complete the cake decoration, I used jolly ranchers, frosting, gum drops, mini marshmallows, gummy hearts and stars, colorful fruit licorice, chocolate almond pirouette cookies and colored sugar sprinkles.
