Welcome to Red Couch Recipes where we have been celebrating my daughter Tati's 16th birthday. A candy tower is a perfect way to celebrate an event of a "sweet" one in your life!
The tower base is just some oasis blocks hot glued together (low temperature glue). I always keep the plastic wrapping on the oasis. Then I glue on candy, some balloon weights, "16" candles and some ribbons.
The candy tower is reminiscent of My 16th birthday where girls would present the birthday gal with candy ribbons. The candy ribbons were basically a bow with ribbons streaming from the bow and candy taped on the ribbons. The birthday gal would pin the bows on and all day long other students would pull candy off the birthday gal. Well, my daughter doesn't have this traditon at her school, but this is what I have taken to my children's school when they turned 16.
The idea is that students will tear off candy from the tower all day long. There is a lot of candy here; the tower is actually heavy.
My daughter is very sweet and I hope she enjoys this sweet birthday surprise.
A couple of years ago, I found this concept on Kim's Cheap Chic Home website.
Thanks for dropping by the Red Couch.
