What are you most proud of? The gumdrop tier. The entire outside of the cake is candy.....Starburst, Skittles, Lolipops, gumballs, gumdrops, and rianbow sprinkles!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's easy and fun. Just cover your cakes in fondant and use royal icing to glue the candy! It's like making a gingerbread house.
