Candy Cake 3.0

This weekend we celebrated Luke’s 6th birthday.  It’s sort of become a tradition that I make him a candy cake every year [here is year 1 + year 2].  I was hoping to make this year’s the best yet but time slipped away from me.  Not too bad for starting 1/2 hour before the party, I suppose.

I first learned of this idea from Tracy Porter.  Really, all you do is buy the cakes (yes, just buy them) and decorate with all sorts of colorful candy.  It’s the candy that takes the cake!

As for the party we had a jumpy and cotton candy machine, which I wanted to keep.   Isn’t it cute?  It was almost 80 degrees which is unheard of in October and alas our pool was still open [sometimes procrastination isn’t such a bad thing] and it worked out perfect for the party!
