When putting together a candy buffet, it's usually best to have extra candy on hand. If they candy level gets low, you will want to top it off. Also, most people over-estimate how much candy they are buying. Give yourself some breathing room by purchasing a little bit more than you think you will need. The last thing you need when planning an event is to start setting up and realize you are short on your key decorative feature. The most important thing about a candy buffet table is to make your own and have a blast. And remember, your colorful candy buffet can be be used on its own, or incorporated as part of your traditional cake ideas.
