A Candy Cake

I made this cake for my second granddaughter's birthday. She went through all of my books, looked over all the pictures, and finally decided on this one!

The tiers are 6" and 10", covered with fondant. The swags and pieces of "candy" are made of fondant as are the letters. The gumdrops are candy instead of fondant. I ran out of time! I purchased the lollipops at a candy shop.

The book showed the lollipops made out of fondant as well, but Nicole didn't know that and I think that's why she picked this cake. Couldn't dissappoint her, could I?
I added the multi-colored ribbons on top around the candy sticks because it seemed a bit bare.

HOPE, A Candle For A Cure

Mia Bella's Gourmet Candles announces 'HOPE', A Candle For A Cure!

Help Us Find A Cure For Breast Cancer.

Profits will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation For Breast Cancer Awareness.

For every 'HOPE' candle purchase online, Scent-sations, Inc. will contribute $6.00 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Scent-sations, Inc. also has announced that they will donate the $4.00 handling fee that they normally charge distributors for each candle sold online. So that means a total of $10.00 will be donated! Wow!!

And as a Mia Bella Gourmet Candle distributor, I personally will donate another $4.00 to the Mid-MO Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation For Breast Cancer Awareness for every candle sold online.
