Candy Crush Bust Cake Tutorial

Skill level: Advanced

It’s not every day you get asked to make a Candy Crush cake… by Candy Crush! This piece was created for their social media channels, based on the concept “Candy on my mind.”

After collaborating with their team, we settled on a design featuring a bust cake, filled with candy that would spill out when cutting into the hair, revealing layers of cake and candy pieces.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a bust cake, featuring an African American bust, ganache hair, molded candies from isomalt, how to make an edible smart phone, how to make the bust and edible clothing and finishing off the design with a decorated cake board.

There’s a lot to cover in this tutorial, so let’s get our tools together and let’s get started!
