Candy Land Cake

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. As a surprise my mom and sister made me this awesome Candy Land cake resembling the children's board game of the same name.

All of the major Candy Land landmarks were represented. The Peppermint Forest, Gumdrop Mountains, Lollipop Woods, the Chocolate Swamp, and last but not least (not to mention my personal favorite), Candy Castle. Candy Castle stood at the the top of the cake. Marshmallow ice cream cones were dipped in colored sugar to mimic the ice cream cones that make up the Candy Castle. The marshmallow cones were then surrounded by giant chunks of blue rock candy, as a path of sour Starburst spelled out "Happy Birthday". It was truly a thing of beauty.
