I have a First Birthday cake to do in a few weeks. The theme is Jelly Beans. I am wondering if there is a way to make jelly beans on the cake using frosting. Any tips?

If the theme is jelly beans it must mean they love them so why not use actual jelly beans to decorate I know my kids LOVE candy on the cakes.

I know you didn't ask for cookies, but these minis are so cute...I could picture them on a cake:

hebberd If the theme is jelly beans you do a jelly bean shaped cake and then cover the whole cake in jelly beans icon_smile.gif HTH

How about making the cake look like a bag of jelly beans - with the jelly beans pouring out the open end?

How many other very small children will be at the party? A cake covered in jelly beans would be cute, but a HUGE choking hazard for a 1 year old. My two year old would even have problems and she has most of her teeth. Maybe you could use jelly beans on the main cake and then just icing on a smash cake for the birthday boy/girl. If you wanted to use just icing I think a round tip 5 or bigger would be a good size, depending on how big you want the jelly beans to be.
