    ElizabethKnicely's Note:

    From Taste of Home Kids' Party Food cookbook. Pen Perez from Berkeley, California says, "My friend asked me to make her son's 5th Birthday cake. I asked her what he wanted on it, she said, "Oh, just gobs and gobs of candy." Instead of piling on candy haphazardly, I made it like the Candy Land board game. The birthday boy, his friends and family members loved it!"
