Start by purchasing a delicious cake. Our Candy Cane Cheesecake is from our favorite bakery counter at, but you can find something similar close to home. Follow our steps and create your own masterpiece:

  1. Make or purchase your favorite cake and plate it on a pretty cake stand. Gather your decorations: ribbon for a pretty bow, (remember to remove before slicing) cookies, candies, French macaroons and candy canes.
  2. Add the ribbon to the center of the cake and tie a small bow for an extra cute touch. Add the macaroons around the base of the cake, spacing evenly. Use a dab of icing, if needed, to secure the macaroons to the cake.
  3. Remove wrappers from the candy canes and stick them in the center of the cake forming a circle, spacing evenly. Keep chilled till your party begins.
