Clever idea, very colorful, great for a kid’s party. As gummi bears are rather chewy, though, I wouldn’t think that they are the best for decorating the cake. In fact, the creator of this cake stated on her blog, “The gummy bears are a lot chewier than I remembered. So as awesome as it looks as a cake decoration, it makes it a little impractical when you are trying to have a bite of everything at once.” Then she added that she did not regret this choice, from people’s reactions to the cake.
I might think that M&M’s or Skittles would be a better candy choice for the decorating of the cake, although not having quite the same “Wow” effect as the gummy bears. However, it is a beautiful-looking cake, making me want to try it. You can find the recipe on the blog Raspberri Cupcakes:
