Instructions Checklist
  • Using a serrated knife, trim domes from tops of cakes. Transfer one cake layer to serving platter, and spread with about 1 cup frosting. Top with second cake layer. Use remaining frosting to cover cake, spreading with an offset spatula.

  • To make the candy numbers, lightly spray a piece of parchment paper and metal cookie cutters with nonstick cooking spray. In a microwave-safe glass measuring cup with a pour spout, heat hard candies on high until melted and almost boiling, about 2 minutes, stopping and swirling every 45 seconds to prevent burning (do not stir). Carefully pour melted candies into prepared cookie-cutter molds. (Warning: Candy will be very hot!) Let stand at room temperature until cool, about 20 minutes. Gently remove candy from mold and place in the center of the cake.

  • Arrange candies over top and sides of cake, pressing to adhere to frosting.
