Wonderful One! Cake

Celebrate a first birthday or first-place win, or just tell someone that they’re the best with a #1 Pan candy plaque. Continue the number one theme by topping cupcakes with candy numerals shaped in our Letters & Numbers Gum Paste and Fondant Mold Set.


Difficulty: Somewhat Easy
