kit kat colourful birthday cake!

So, I'm guessing after Christmas and New Years the last thing you want is cake? But what if it's your 21st birthday on January 1st?

WELL THEN YOU GOTTA HAVE CAKE.


This cake came about by trying to out-do the ugly kit kat cake I made for the same birthday LAST year!

It's super easy and has popped up everywhurrr in the blogisphere.

I knew I wouldn't fancy baking when hungover on Jan 1st (I'm only human) and thus made the buttercream icing in advance and cheated with a box cake mix for the rest.


I used x2 8" round baking tins and needed 8 big kit kats and 1 bag of regular m&ms and 1 tube of mini's .. ya know, to fill the cracks!

This cake is ridonkulously sweet and when slicing you should do max 2 kit kat slices per person.
It is thick.
It is sweet.
It's pretty delicious too!

Lets go:










THEN. GET IN TO YOUR SNUGGIE AND EAT, rubbing your belly with a sly smile on your face.

Twill need:
1 cake almost as high as a kit kat
8 kit kats
1 1/2 bags m&ms
ribbon
love
joy
tummy space!

Happy New Year everyone.

  2. But how did you tie the ribbon without the kit kats kollapsing?

  3. Very carefully ;) and because I iced the sides of the cake first, so they stuck!
