Birthday Sweets for Kids with Allergies
3 Tier Round Confetti Cake
3 Round Styrofoam Shapes (8"x2", 6"x2", 4"x2")
Mod Podge
Paint Brush
3 Bags of Confetti or Shredded Gift Bag "Stuffing"

Brush on Mod Podge to the top and sides of each circle of styrofoam. Immediately adding confetti before glue dries, and pressing down on the confetti for about 30-45 seconds to help it adhere to the Mod Podge. Let dry about 15 to 20 minutes. Cut the ribbon to lengths that will fit around the bottom circumference of each tier. Hot glue the ribbon, pulling tight as you complete the circle. Stack the tiers, largest on the bottom and decreasing in size as you go up. Cake can be stored in plastic for later use.
