Candy Cake

I am sometimes stumped on gifts for young ones and I never know if they already have this or that.  Gift cards are great to give, but I like getting or giving something I put some thought into.  Although this gift might not be always welcomed by the parent it is fun and I have gotten great comments when I have given it as a gift.

These are just a few of the items you will need as well as hot glue gun ans glue sticks.  Oh yeah, and don't forget the CANDY! :)  I got everything at the Dollar Tree except for the cake board.  But you could even just cut out a round cardboard.

I took a 8" cake board and covered it with wrapping paper.  I then tiered the styrofoam rings and hot glued them together and then to the cake board. 

I then poked the huge lollipop down the middle of the cake.  {Side note, it works well to leave the plastic wrap on the styrofoam rings}

Then I layered the candy and attached with hot glue gun.  Added some curled ribbon to the top and WALAH!

Easy, easy.

Always partying with these wonderful linky parties here.
