    Does anyone know a cheap place online where I can buy mini candy canes, or does anyone here have some leftover from christmas??

    My son wants a candy land birthday cake, and we are going to make it look like the game board. So i need about 6-10 mini candy canes for the peppermint forest. (Ugh every birthday he wants something that I have a horrible time finding...ha ha)

    Anywhoo.. I know spanglercandy.com has them for $1.99 but they want $9 shipping! :eek: or orientaltrading.com has them for $5.99 with $6.99 shipping.... so yeah expensive :yuck:

    His birthday party is next sat the 13th..if anyone has any ideas or can help me out I would appreciate it!

    LOL - Sorry Elizabeth, can't help you - but this is like deja vu with last year when we were scrambling for our boys birthday parties!

    This year mine wants a Spaceship Birthday! With a spaceship pinata!

    Hope you find your candy canes! Do they need the little hook on the end? Because Cracker Barrel has small peppermint sticks...

    is the Bulk Barn just a Canadian (Ontario?) thing? Are there any bulk food stores near you? They will have the peppermint sticks, if not the candy canes this time of year...

    I know - we must have started a trend or something!

    Haven't found the pinata yet - but I'm going to the Party Store to see what they have...

    Becky, you could always make a plain grey paper mache sphere for a piƱata, and call it the moon. :)
