I made this cake for a 11 year old girl. The birthday girl LOVED her cake…and so did her friends. The cake was topped with many different candies using clear piping gel as glue. I used bamboo skewers for the Twizzlers and of course the sticks already on the lollipops were very helpful. I smothered the cake with homemade chocolate buttercream frosting because that is the birthday girls favorite (vanilla buttercream would really make the colors pop.) I dyed the homemade batter using gel food dye. Give this “candy cake creation” a try the next time you want to WOW the birthday person.
