It's Valentine's Day, and this year we're serving up more than the standard box of chocolates. Imagine the look on your sweetheart's face when you give them our Candy Dish Layered Cake! It looks fancy, but it's super simple to make! Get together your favorite candy as a topping, the more colorful the better. Everyone is sure to fall in love with a cake this creatively sweet. 

What You'll Need

  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • 1 (4-serving-size) package instant vanilla pudding mix and pie filling
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 (16-ounce) can chocolate frosting
  • 15 (1.5-ounce) crisp wafer candy bars (We used KitKats)
  • 1 chocolate truffle
  • 2 cups candy-coated chocolate peanut candies
  • 2 cups chocolate coated malt balls
  • 2 cups gummy candies
  • Ribbon for decoration

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat the bottoms of 2 (8-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cake mix, pudding mix, milk, oil, and eggs until thoroughly combined. Pour batter evenly into cake pans.
  3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. Place 1 cake layer on a platter and frost top. Place second layer on top and frost top and sides of cake. Arrange candy bars around cake, as shown, pressing them gently to secure. The candy bars should extend higher than the cake. Place chocolate truffle in center of cake. Arrange 6 more candy bars on top of cake, as shown. Fill each wedge with remaining candies, as shown. Tie a ribbon around the cake, if desired.
