    I used gourmet jelly beans with chocolate chips for the centres. Everyone loved the decorations. The first time I made a lemon cake with a lemon curd filling and homemade buttercream frosting, but I have also used the design on a sheet cake with excellent results!

    This cake was super easy to decorate and everyone loved how cute it turned out. The only thing I would change would be to add strawberry or raspberry filling, just to make it a little more than a white cake with white frosting since no one ended up eating the candy.
