How to Create a Candy Cake

by Beth H.

Supplies

  • Bowls in different sizes
  • Mini candy bars
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbon
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Oops, this is. Actually an "after" picture but here you can see the bowls.

    Step 2

    Stack the bowls and hot glue together. Once you have a design in mind, start at the bottom gluing the mini candy bars leaving no space for the bowls to be seen.

    Step 3

    Only use a small dab of glue at the bottom and top so you don't Mel the chocolate.

    Step 4

    Having a color theme in mind helps the overall look of the cake. Mixing candy bars makes it seem cluttered.

    Step 5

    I've used the same bowls for a couple of years now.

    Step 6

    For this latest one, I stacked square bowls for a slightly different look.

    Step 7

    I punched out circles and glued them to ribbon to make streamers then glued the streamers to the top.
