Ain’t no party like a sloth party, ‘cause a sloth party don’t stop…being really lazy and is probably super tiring. These sloth cupcakes are a fun way to celebrate your love of sloths and party supplies.

Sloth candy cake

This sloth cake speaks to me on so many levels. Not only is it super cute, but the entirety of the decor is made from pre-bought candy. Let’s call it the sloth-like mentality of decorating. Yes to candy, plus cake, because my life’s motto is, “Two desserts are better than one.”
