Candy Land Game Cake
This bright colored cake was the centerpiece for a birthday party at Powell's Candy Shop in Aliso Viejo. A chocolate chocolate chip cake was covered in white fondant and covered in colorful candy details depicting the game Candy Land. Backgrounds, mountains and greenery were added with icing, then the fondant path was added to mirror the Candy Land game board. Fondant was hand cut to create cupcakes, ice cream cones, a gingerbread house, gingerbread men, snowflakes and chocolate bon bons around the sides of the cake. Lollipops and person-shaped game board pieces were also made from fondant and added to the top of the cake. Gumdrops were added the base to create a border around the bottom. And various candies were added to the top: gumdrops, gummy bears, chocolate rocks, and starlight mints.
