Candyland Pull Apart Cupcakes

Melanie Campbell


If you don’t have a large enough platter, cover a piece of cardboard (15x12-inches) with aluminum foil. You can also purchase shiny silver-colored cardboard rectangles for cakes at craft and fabric stores.

To save time, unwrap the candies while the cupcakes are baking and cooling.
