Favorite Treats Birthday Cake - made of soda and candy. LOVE it! Such a great gift idea!

I’m a slacker at time. Just ask my family. I decided to make my brother-in-law a gift for his birthday LAST YEAR and finally just finished it a few weeks ago. Pretty pathetic, right? I bought all the stuff back in November and ended up having to re-buy most of it so that it was “fresh.” LOL. I guess it’s better than not getting it done at all, but still. Pretty bad that it would take about 6 months to do.

Any who, the idea came from HERE. I saw it via Pinterest and knew it would be a quick and easy gift that any receiver would love. I mean, it’s made out of the person’s favorite soda/drinks and candy. What’s not to love about that? In this case, my BIL loves Squirt, Dr. Pepper and Almond Joys so that’s what I got to make the cake. Fortunately, it didn’t take long to make (which makes me wonder again why it took so long to do). Perhaps it was because I was preggo and getting ready to move out of state. Excuses, excuses – I know! 😉

Here is what you’ll need to make it this Favorite Treats Birthday Cake:
