easy back to school cake

Don’t let how cute this cake turned out, intimidate you. It’s actually really easy to put together.

I especially like all the fun colors!

A few days ago, I shared our chalkboard invites here that I made from popsicle sticks. Today I am sharing how to create this back to school crayon cake.  Check back later for more fun or follow along so you don’t miss all of our great post on crafting, cooking, kid activities and home decor…. via your favorite social network :Twitter,Pinterest or Facebook and our readers preferred way via email.


Back to School Crayon Cake


  • round cake (small)
  • round stick wafers
  • white chocolate
  • food coloring
  • colored paper
  • vanilla icing

1. Bake your round cake as instructed on the box and place your favorite vanilla icing over it.  Make sure whatever icing you use that it’s stiff not runny otherwise crayons won’t stick to it.


For the crayons. Melt your white chocolate. I melt my white chocolate by boiling water in a pot and placing a heat resistant glass bowl over it, with the chocolate inside. The microwave method for white chocolate doesn’t work for me.  This way I can also reboil the water if the chocolate hardened and the chocolate melts again with the right consistency. Place the chocolate in small bowls so you can add food coloring. Mix.

1 Dip the ends of each wafer in the chocolate colored mixture. Let them dry.

2. Cover your wafers with the colored paper as shown in picture. I found it easier to draw the black line on the paper before placing it on the wafer.  Use tape.

3. Add some white chocolate to the back of the crayon and immediately place onto the side of the cake.

Top the cake with sprinkles and a chocolate covered oreo apple.
