A Sophisticated Cake with French Macarons

I love how simple and elegant French Macarons are and they beautiful on top of a cake! You can find them at Whole Foods, Costco in the freezer section and I've seen them at WalMart in the refrigerator case by the bakery as well! Macarons come in many beautiful colors and pair well with the Boho Rainbow Party Cake Topper

Marshmallows & Cotton Candy Dreams Cake

 Cake with more sweets on top? Count me in! You can add dimension and color to your cake with these Yummix Marshmallows and Fluffy stuff cotton candy! Grab small pieces of the cotton candy and place it around the bottom of your cake and then simply add your favorite marshmallow pieces around the cake. Add on your Pink, Purple and Blue Cake Topper and you're party ready!

Smarties and Frosting: A Taste Combination Like a Party in Your Mouth

 You'd be a Smartie to try out this delicious cake idea! Smarties on top of a cake was a happy accident, my niece was having a Candyland themed birthday and we put all different kinds of candy on her cake. Things like Laffy Taffy, Smarties, gummies, Starbursts, we knew it might not be super tasty but kids love candy so we did it. We were shocked at how good the Smarties were with the frosting! You get the crunch from the Smarties and the smoothness of the frosting and they just paired so well!

I used a combination of the Mega Smarties as well as the regular size to decorate this cake. Place them gently around the cake, I did the Mega Smarties on the top and bottom with the smaller in between but have fun with this!
