How To Create A Candy Board

It’s actually pretty easy to create a beautiful candy board. If you’ve seen my cheese boards, you’ll notice some similarities in the way I lay out the design with these steps:

  • Start by picking a color palette (pink, white, red & chocolate brown are perfect for VDAY)
  • Place a few smaller candies in bowls or ramekins around the board. In this case, heart-shaped bowls were perfectly fitting.
  • Arrange candies in fun and uniform patterns (I.e along the edge of the board or in a triangular patter)
  • Fan cookies/candies around the bowls
  • Fill in the holes with smaller candies
