A wonderland of Candy Crush delicacies come to life in ‘Candy Crush Cakes and Bakes’
‘Candy Crush Cakes and Bakes’ embodies all of the mouthwatering fun that is Candy Crush Saga and beyond. Get lost in a Willy Wonka daydream flipping through pages of vibrant desserts inspired by the game’s signature design. Here are some of our favorite, over-the-top creations.
Yeti Cake Surprise
Yeti is a familiar face to anyone who’s visited Candy Crush land. He sells boosters from the Yeti Shop and reigns over the Chocolate Mountains and the Toffee Tower you encounter at level 48. But this outrageous cake is a level beyond, with sugar-coated chocolates exploding out of the core of the vanilla sponge cake base. Don’t forget to blanket this confection in a thick and messy layer of buttercream—made to look like Yeti’s fabulously furry coat.
Chocolate Mountains Cake
What’s a Yeti to do without the mouth-watering Chocolate Mountains he encounters in episode four? This decadent cake is literally dripping with sweetness and the perfect embodiment of the mountainscape where Yeti loves to frollick and snooze. It uses Chocolate Ganache to artfully recreate the statuesque chocolate summit that’s oozing hot pink icing, scattered with chocolate trees, and paved with tiny marshmallows.
Tiffi’s Iced Candy Cupcakes
Your biggest fan and Candy Crush cheerleader, the joyful Tiffi, is the epitome of sweetness—and so are the swirly iced cupcakes she’s inspired. Start with a vanilla base (or your flavor of choice), then it’s all about the icing. Buttercream frosting piped into fun swirling pattern echoes Tiffi’s bouncy blonde locks, and a generous scattering of jelly beans make these cheerful little desserts pop.
Swedish Fish Cookies
If anything is more deliciously addictive than Candy Crush Saga itself, it’s the Swedish Fish candies that have a constant presence in the game as boosters that help you advance levels. These gingerbread biscuits elevate the status of those classic sweets by reinventing them as colorfully coated cookies. You’ll need a Dresden tool to apply the icing and carve all the detail into it, but it’s so worth it. The finished product will make a serious splash.
Delicious Drift Igloo Cupcakes
In the 18th episode of Candy Crush Saga, you encounter the Delicious Drifts, a polar dreamscape peppered with marshmallow igloos. You’ll want to take shelter inside these confections topped with mounds of brightly colored marshmallows. We defy you to resist sinking your teeth into their pillowy surfaces. Buttercream frosting acts as adhesive for the marshmallows’ perfectly constructed pattern. Inside is a moist and buttery vanilla cupcake that will set your tastebuds adrift.
Color Bomb Cake Pops
Is it a lollipop? Is it cake? It’s both—and it’s the bomb! Color bombs give you bonus points starting at level 2 in Candy Crush Saga, but these portable, handheld treats will score you major brownie points in real life. Just use vanilla or chocolate sponge cake as base and dip each treat in chocolate and sprinkles. Such low effort for such high impact—Color Bomb Cupcakes will add a whopping dose of cheer to snacktime.
This vivid concoction is not just a dessert; it’s a masterpiece. Ready to hone your fondant design skills? The Gameboard Cake is an homage to the entire Candy Crush Saga, and it takes patience and skill to perfect—just like the game itself. Spend an afternoon artfully arranging meticulously formed candies in a grid pattern across the buttercream topping. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple—every color in the rainbow is represented. Designing a cake this intricate is a pretty sweet way to level up your baking game.
