I'm looking for more cakes w/ lollipops & other store bought candies. But will take answers for the kit kat/m&m cakes too.
I think this is cute http://www.thecakemamas.com/uploads/2/0/9/4/2094405/6775996.jpg
And I love this one
Do you think those are candies on the side? If so what kind?
This would be a good simple alternative, but anything besides gumdrops & what around the bottom?
I know, I'm mean, but I don't buy candy for my girls. So, I'm at a loss where to even find those kind of lollipops & how much they'd be. I know Walmart carries things like sprees, skittles, & stuff like that, but I'm clueless on the other stuff. We do have a candy store in town, but we all know what kind of prices they have
I've seen a lot of people make those giant lolipops out of colored gumpaste (or fondant with tylose). roll out logs/snakes of 2 or three different colors, twist them together like a rope, then roll the whole thing into a wheel and press to flatten just a bit. Insert a sucker stick at the bottom, lay flat to dry and there you have it!
looks to me like they squished starburst into squares to use as the border on that last cake!
She's not wanting to pay for fondant/gumpaste accents. Which is fine with me. I don't know cost wise which would be cheaper though
I definitely charge them more..............when i make treasure chest cakes I charge them $5.00 for about $2.00 worth of candy.........I still have to shop for it.
I would tell them to buy the candy they'd like on the cake and provide it to you, otherwise charge them $5.00 plus the cost of the candy!
Very cute cakes posted in this thread.
OMG! I just went to the Dollar Tree & they had some stuff that could be used. But get this, Cracker Barrel has the old "rope" rolled lollies for $1.80 each (for the small). the local candy store has them for $2.50 ea & the big ones for $5 & then the unicorn ones are $5 too. So, I'm going to recommend she supply me w/ the candy & let me decorate. Have a feeling this is going to be an order lost!
