m&m and kit kat birthday cake

Yesterday the boyfriend announced he needed to make a birthday cake for one of his work mates and produced a google image (no recipe of course) of what he wanted it to look like. Our version I’m pretty pleased to say looks fairly identical, if you’ve given up chocolate for lent look away now! It’s a basic vanilla sponge covered with chocolate butter cream with kit kats around the edge and peanut m&m’s on top. It’s definitely one of the better cakes we’ve made together, I’ve asked him to save me a piece but I’m not going to hold my breath as I can’t see it lasting long in his office.


We used about 18 kit kat bars and two packs of peanut m&m's.

    1. That's such a cool idea - will have to add a Sheldon if we make another one!
