Cotton Candy Bars

Hayley Parker Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

These fun, unique bars get their blue color and cotton candy flavor from the wonderful Frosting Creations packets and their great texture and ease from a box of cake mix. White chocolate chips add a nice crunch, along with plenty of rainbow sprinkles! They can feed and please a crowd--kids and adults alike--reminiscent of a summertime carnival anytime of year.

Smooth cake

Smooth cake

A fast and easy way to get a cake smooth is using Viva paper towels. Take a piece and lightly press against the cake while rubbing your hand gently across it. Carefully peel it back and repeat all over the cake. I find this practical when decorating a cake and accidentally made a mark where it shouldn't be. This method is fast and super easy!
