Candy Bar Cake: Your Guy Will Love It



***This post is updated and republished from the archives. But with Father’s Day coming up, I thought you might like the inspiration! My husband LOVED it. 🙂 ***

My husband doesn’t like cake. I know… it’s weird. So for a special occasion I wanted to find a creative way to treat him. I stumbled upon this idea for creating a “cake” made out of candy bars.

I bought/assembled all the supplies called for in the tutorial, including big bars, mini mars, double-sided tape, tins, and basket crinkle paper. And then I waited until the last minute to assemble it and couldn’t find all the stuff. Go figure.

Instead, I used one of the tins and a smaller tupperware and just looped regular tape to attach the candy. Since I couldn’t find the basket paper either, I laid those across the surfaces. Not the most beautiful candy bar cake, but my husband liked it. I even filled the bottom tin with some fun items, including IOUs from me. 🙂
