Theresa's Mixed Nuts: DIY Candy Bar Cake

DIY Candy Bar Cake

A few years back I made a "cake" out of candy bars for my nephew's birthday. He absolutely loved it! Mariah's boyfriend just had a birthday, so I thought maybe I'd be nice and make him one too. The nice thing about this "cake" is that you can use any candy bar to make it. Use the same, mix them up. It really doesn't matter. Just make sure the bars are about equal in size so it isn't totally lopsided.


I used Hershey's because that was what was on sale that week, and I bought one of these foam rings at the $1 store, so this craft is relatively inexpensive, but a huge hit with teens! 

This is a pretty self explanatory craft. Just hot glue your candy around the ring. I stuffed the inside of the ring with tissue paper, then topped it with some Hershey's Kisses. Wrap a ribbon around, then you are all done!


What kind of candy bars would you use on your cake?

  1. I'll take one made out of all Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Milky Ways please. That is an awesome idea.

    1. I don't know what Flake is. I am gong to go Google that!
      Her bf is a doll. I thought I would hate it when she started dating, but we adore him and his family!

  8. My mom made cakes like this when I was younger. She did a lot of her own candy and stuff too. Seemed like everyone was having some sort of a party and mom baked something. I didn't really get the baker gene, just the cooking!

  11. Love this idea! So simple for me who is challenged when it comes to this sort of thing. I bought one of those rings for a different project that I never made so I am definitely going to use it for this cake. My boys like Hershey's and Kit Kats, I might throw in some Three Musketeers for Mom. ;)

  12. That looks tasty. A few years ago, I really did make a candy bar pie. It was made of Butterfingers, whipped cream, and cream cheese poured into a pie crust. Everyone loved it!

    1. That sounds a lot like the butterfinger cake that I make but we use condensed milk instead of cream cheese. Now my husband requests that specific cake every year for his birthday!

  13. What a cute idea, I may have to do this for my next kids party!

  14. Yep, I can see how it's a hit with the teens. :) I'd use non-fattening, no sugar, only good for you candy of course (not). :) :)

  15. I'd probably make one with Reese's everything. I love peanut butter cups. Now they have candy bars.

  17. I might make one of these for Elliott for Halloween, since we aren't doing trick or treating this year.

  18. I have a Daughter and 2 Granddaughters who would go nuts for this candy cake. I just wish I could eat it with them.
