Candy Land Cake!

Once again, I have been commissioned to create a cake for a 4-year olds birthday party. The theme? Candy Land!

I wanted to go above and beyond with this cake, so I bought fondant to make a smooth canvas over the chocolate and vanilla flavored cake.

I melted chocolate chips for the Chocolate Swamp, and used Peppermints to create a sort of castle. And of course, it wouldn't be a Candy Land cake without a Gum Drop Mountain Pass!

Without a doubt, every kid at the party left dreaming of a sweet, wonderful world where sugary surprises wait at every corner. At the very least, I hope they left with an uncomfortable, but oh so glorious sugar coma!
