After the cancellation of Electricity, Meaghan was lead to the creation of "Candy Land". Meaghan said: "After I scrapped Electricity, I thought of doing a completely new idea, with different songs. We had only written and produced three tracks before the album was cancelled, so only a month's work was wasted." The new album's name and some production details were announced by Meaghan on her website in July 2010. She revealed the name of the album, the cover art and said that there would be sixteen tracks with a lot of collaborations - she also said that the album would be: "Sweet and delicious, with many songs that you will like because they are catchy!"
Before she released that information, on July 5, 2010, two demos were leaked onto PengTube. One was rumored to be named "Sweet" and the other "Glitter". Meaghan had performed "Glitter" live at her birthday party in Tel Ah Phon. She had also released three promotional singles after the cancellation of Electricity: which were "Whateva!", "Almost Over" and "Color Ur World". During the next few months, the album was in the stages of being half-finished. She said: "There are fifteen sweet tracks, with a lot of collaborations! I wanted to work with every artist out there. The album's half-way done, and I'm guessing it won't be finished until next year." Later, she was asked about the leaked demos. "I can confirm that only one of those demos, "Glitter", are really gonna be on the album. It's much longer than one minute, and has vocals in it. The other one, "Sweet", was originally gonna be on the album, but we changed our mind in May."
A lot of promotion for the album was started in August 2010. A huge billboard was raised in one of Tel Ah Phon's most popular places, like in front of the Telephone Building and in front of the Telephone Arena. Meaghan also sang two songs from the album at her birthday party, which are "Glitter" and "(Evil) Cotton Candy Clouds".
On November 21, 2010, Meaghan confirmed 5 songs from the album: "Telahphonian Gurls", "Glitter", "(Evil) Cotton Candy Clouds", "Almost Over" and "The Candy Land". That same day, the cover art for the Deluxe Edition of the album was posted on Meaghan's website. It has a "candy monster" fighting against "The Candy Meaghan". On October 1, the promotion was raised more. Two more billboards announcing an upcoming tour by Meaghan were raised. One was put up in Neo Domino City, announcing the upcoming album. In it three songs were announced, it said: "CandyLand" by Meaghan: Coming very soon. Including the songs "Telahphonian Gurls", "The Candy Land" and "Superstar". Many people questioned if any of the songs that were announced featured anyone, Meaghan replied: "Yes, some of them. But I'm not revealing the collaborations yet. Maybe in some months."
On December 24, 2010, Meaghan decided to release the tracklist of the album on her website. The list was spread all across the Internet. Many tried interviewing Meaghan, but she only accepted one interview. She said: "I really enjoyed doing these collaborations. It was fun working with them, we had a blast! The album is so huge I cannot explain it. I'm already planning the tour and the first performance of several songs from it. Maybe you'll watch 'em at the Antarctic Music Awards." Below where she revealed the tracklist, it said which of them were becoming singles.
