Difficulty: Medium


Step 1

In advance, mold and assemble hexagon candy plaques and rectangle edges, including monogram panels.

On a foil-covered plywood base, position 15 in. hexagon candy plaque, then the 10 in. cake.

Step 7

Cut a cake board into an 11 in. hexagon and position on the 10 in. cake. Position 12 in. candy plaque, then 8 in. cake on 8 in. cake board. Position candy clay panels. Add tip 3 bead borders.

Step 8

At reception: Position candy plaques and tiers. Arrange truffles around bottom borders. Attach monogram panels to top, securing with melted candy.
