The completed Surprise Candy CakeThis craft is not a cake. I made this one for my son's birthday last December so that I don't have to make loot bags. Indeed I was able to save half of my budget. Anyway, I am sharing this to give you a gift idea for Valentine's Day. It's a DIY surprise candy cake.



  • Cardboards
  • Scissors and cutters
  • Art paper (any color of your choice)
  • glue
  • double sided tapes
  • ribbon
  • cake topper
  • assorted individually packed candies
  • Cake board
Supplies for Surprise Candy Cake


  1. If you are making two layers, cut out two big circles and two small ones from your thick cardboard.
  2. Circles of cardboard as the cake base.
  3. Measure your preferred length of each layer. Then cut out 2 long rectangular pieces of cardboard that fits based on the circumference of the circles for both layers.
  4. Placing the first base down.
    White paper to wrap around the base.
  5. Wrap this around the circle and glue them in place. Put something hard or heavy inside the box to make it stable. Or you can either put more candies or anything you like to surprise your partner.
  6. Making a cylinder with the white paper.
    Placing a bag of toys in the bottom.

  7. Cover the top layer with the other circle, then cover the whole box with art paper.
  8. Adding the next circle to the top.
    Adding the next circle to the top.
  9. Do the same steps for the top layer.
  10. If you wish to make a pullout message, then try cutting a rectangular hole on its top cover.
  11. cutting a slot in the middle of a circle.
  12. Insert the first pack through the hole theb arrange your message properly and test if it rolls up perfectly before gluing it. As you can see I placed chocolates and paper bills inside since it was used for a birthday. You can insert valentine cards and packed chocolates for valentines.
  13. Placing candy through the slot.
    The candy inside.

  14. Cover with art paper and glue it on the top center of the first box.
  15. Another layer to the cake.
  16. Get your individually packed chocolates and candies and stick them all over in place using a double sided tape.
  17. Adding candy to the outside of the cake.
  18. On the top portion, stick the tip of the cake topper into the tip of the first pullout candy/message card. Hide the opening with lots of candies.
  19. Wrap a ribbon around it then glue the bottom into a cake board and prepare to surprise your partner with so much sweetness filled with love.
  20. Tying with ribbons.


  1. You can just make one layer if you like since it costs much lesser for a single day occasion.
