Candyland is a classic board game that allows players to race in a world of candy to the end. Individuals of all ages and backgrounds may play the game because it does not require any type of reading skills and the counting skills required are minimal.

Now it is time for you to come up with a way that you may create your own Candyland cake. If you have a lot of time, patience, creative skills, and money to invest in the materials for the project, you could probably make a cake that looks just like the board game using fondant for the squares and three dimensional cake toppers such as peppermint sticks and a gingerbread house. However, if you want to simply capture the essence of the candy pieces in the game, you may create a cake using real candy, or, candy pieces that you create from sugar and/or fondant. For a simple Candyland cake, you may use the following instructions:

Instructions for Creating a Basic Candyland Birthday Cake

  • Rectangular Cake Pan
  • White Cake Mix
  • White Frosting or White Fondant
  • Candyland Edible Cake Topper Image
  • Peppermint Candies – Unwrapped
  • Hot Pink Writing Icing

Step 1: Make a sheet cake according to your box instructions and let it cool. Then transfer it to a cake plate.

Step 2: Either cover the cake with white fondant or cover it with white frosting.

Step 3: Top the cake off with the placement of an edible frosting sheet that displays imagery from the Candyland game.

Step 4: Place the peppermint candies along each side of the cake, leaving about a half inch between each piece.

Step 5: Use the hot pink writing icing and go along the bottom sides of the cake, and around the edible cake image to accent it and give the cake a professional and finished appearance.

The time has arrived for you to transform a birthday cake into one that reflects and/or resembles the Candyland board game.
