Ok, here's the scoop. My parents grew up in a tiny town in Mexico. Back then there was no such thing as giving presents on birthdays since they were poor. So what they would give as a present was a Coca-Cola (the glass bottle type) along with a sweet bread (it's called a "Concha). We follow that tradition, because it means so much to us. So, for my sister's b-day I want to make her a "Concha" out of cake and my question is how do you make the candy that goes on top? I don't want to use fondant. Any help is greatly appreciated.

hello I make pan dulce here at home I will give you the topping recipe I use... this recipe only goes for about a dozen but you can double it for the top of your concha cake...
1/4 cup butter (softend)
1/4 cup shortening
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla ext
make sure when you are done mixing the topping together you put it in the fridge for a few to harden up otherwise it will just be a big mess on your hands and of course add whatever food coloring youd like and wa laa...
