Note
If you don't have an ovenproof 2-1/2-qt. bowl, you can instead bake the cake batter in 2 (8- or 9-inch) round pans following the baking directions on package. Stack the 2 cooled cake layers on plate, filling layers with 1/2 cup cream cheese mixture. Cut diamond-shaped cake piece into top and side of cake as directed, then frost with remaining cream cheese mixture and decorate with candies as directed.
How to Break the Rock Candy into Chunks
Place rock candy sticks in resealable plastic bags, using separate bag for each color of candy. Gently tap candy in each bag with rolling pin to make desired-size chunks.
