I was given a fun challenge and asked to decorate a cake using Mike and Ike candies. I wanted to come up with something simple and fun to do, but something elegant that would really make a statement. I came up with this really dramatic pattern that looks really cool and complicated. It is actually a lot easier to do than it seems. You need to have a cake ready to decorate. I used a cake covered in white fondant but you can also use a cake covered in a smooth layer of buttercream. Then you are ready to decorate.
