Frosting Between LayersPer instructions, the colored frosting is dotted on the layers which are stacked. The side looks sort of random and not very pretty. Why not frost between layers with one color each, stack with candy filling, then frost the cake all over in white, using colors to decorate. Not as messy looking, and still a huge surprise. Love the surprise in the middle cakes!
