Stained Glass Cake


  • 1 recipe Chocolate Chip Cake
  • 1 recipe White Vanilla Frosting
  • Candy: 24 pink and red Jolly Ranchers, pink sanding sugar
  • Cooking spray


  1. Make Chocolate Chip Cake according to recipe. Trim domed tops of two of the layers. Place one trimmed layer on a cake stand or serving platter and top with 2/3 cup White Vanilla Frosting. Repeat two more times, using domed layer on top. Frost top and sides with remaining frosting.
  2. Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Line three candies end to end in the left corner of the prepared baking sheet. Repeat three more times in the remaining corners. Bake until the candy has melted together and makes one long piece, 3 to 5 minutes. Cool until cool enough to handle, 3 to 5 minutes; transfer to a lightly greased wire rack to cool completely. Repeat one more time.
  3. Gently tap cooled candy on the edge of the baking sheet to crack into shards. Brush the edges of the shards with water and dip into sanding sugar. Attach around sides of cake.
