To build the pyramid, place the cardboard-cake square on a clean work surface. Place sixteen Confetti Squares 1/2 inch apart on the board to form a square.
Place four Confetti Squares spaced about 1/4 inch apart in center of first square to form a second smaller square. Place twelve Cocoa Krispies Treats 1/4 inch apart around the four Confetti Squares to form a larger square. This layer should be about 3/4 inch smaller than the first layer.
Center one Cocoa Krispies Treat on previous layer. Place eight Rice Krispies Treats around the Cocoa Krispies Treat to form a square about 1 inch smaller than the layer of Cocoa Krispies Treats.
Center one Confetti Square on the Rice Krispies Treats. Place one Confetti Square at the point of each corner of the center Confetti Square to create a layer about 3/4 inch smaller than the previous layer.
Center four Cocoa Krispies Treats on Confetti Squares to form a square about 1 inch smaller than the previous layer. Finish the pyramid by placing one Rice Krispies Treat on center of previous layer.
