Candy Cake

Candy Cake on Cake Central

This cake was for my son's 4th birthday. All buttercream finish with fondant details and gum paste lollipops. The stripes on the bottom tier are licorice and the borders are M&M's, swedish berries and sour candy. The licorice seemed like a good idea until tried to place them on the cake. They aren't as workable as I thought and it ruined the cake. It was too late to turn back since the finish was buttcream and I didn't have time to start over. I will never use it again! Live and learn. Just glad it wasn't for someone else. I wasn't happy with the lollipops either. The gumpaste kept tearing. Next time I think I would try modeling chocolate.
