The Cub Scout Auction Cake.

At the annual Cub Scout Blue & Gold banquet they have a cake auction to raise funds for the pack.

Each Cub Scout's family is encouraged to create a cake for the auction.

I am NOT a baker so ... we thought a little out of the box and created a bakeless candy bar cake

We started with different sizes of styrofoam circles and candy bars

Then we cut circles to fit on the top of the styrofoam to give it a more finished look

This is what the styrofoam looked like before we added the candy bars

We took candy bars and very gently hot glued them to the styrofoam circless.

I did look for several different ways to adhered the candy bar and the hot glue worked the best.

Once we added the candy bars to each "layer" of the circles they were hot glued into place on top of each other. We found some curly ribbons at the dollar store we added to the top. We went to the Boy Scout website and found the Cub Scout logo. We made it larger and printed it out and attached it to a wooden skewer to go on top of the cake.

And finally ... our completed bakeless candy bar cake!

We were so happy when our cake went for $55 at the auction!
