For a child who love candy, a Candy Land Theme would be an excellent and fun choice. Make the cake look like a candy land, and play games centered around the themes found on a candy land game. Make treat bags filled with candy and cookies (moms will love that, right?)
Candy Land Cake: Make a standard sheet cake in your child's favorite flavor. When it is cool, frost it with butter cream frosting in your child's favorite color. If you can get your hands on a Candy Land game board, you will be able to fashion the cake decorating to resemble the board. You can also go to Candyland.com to see a game board.
The Candy Land game features peppermints, iced gingerbread men, colored gumdrops, licorice sticks, chocolate candies, and circus peanuts.
