Polka Dot Cake

When I was a kid, I loved Candy Buttons (the dots that come on paper tape!) And for a polka dot party, they’d be the perfect accessory for a simple cake. To make this, just cover an already-frosted cake in Candy Buttons the color of your party theme. Done and done. (PS – Ever wonder how to perfectly frost a messy cake?)

    That is so super cute! I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had candy buttons. Weird, huh?

    I was wondering if you could share where you found the candles? I’ve been looking a long time for long and narrow candles like the one you used!
    Thank you,
