candy cakes

Mandy and I have boys that share a birthday. Today her son is 5 and mine is 1! Happy Birthday boys! Remember this little guy we featured last week?



Yep, that's my little guy. But here is what he looks like now...

He has grown up so fast and I cannot believe he is already 1! For his birthday I wanted to make him a special cake. I saw a cake on my friend's blog and it was just fabulous. She found the idea from the Texas Monkey blog.

Here's the cake I made my little guy. Isn't it adorable? I love that it looks like a big bowl of candy!

It is two 8 inch round cakes frosted with kit-kats lining the outside and M&Ms on top. It was super easy, but looks so great!

Their site has all the tips and instructions and also has other versions of easy candy cakes. I love this one for Halloween...


And this Christmas one...


Go visit Texas Monkey. There are cakes for each holiday!

I love the look of those cakes, especially the one with Kit-Kats. It's such a creative idea and looks so easy to do. I'll definitely keep this in mind.

Happy Birthday to your sweet children, and that cake looks great. Never would have guessed it was homemade.

I just made the candy cake for my son's 11th birthday. Everyone loved it. I discovered if you use the 'value packs' of the kit-kats which are shorter then you can get away with less m&m's. Good for Mom, not so cool for the boy. But he loved it and all was good.

Hi,

your son is just the cutest thing.
Yes they do grow up so fast - I have a 2 and a half year old son and it amazes me that it was only yesterday that I saw for the 1st time and how he's turned into a little man.

Now about the cakes... WOW - they are awesome (don't know if I'm spelling this right!).
Thank you for sharing this with all of us.
have a nive day and Happy birthday to the little prince.
Monica
