How to Make The Kit Kat and M&M Cake

Full disclosure:  I did not invent the Kit Kat Cake.  It’s been making the Pinterest rounds for a while, and I first saw it on O Taste and See- Kit Kat Cake.  I was bouncing around blogs one night and stumbled upon it.  The husband happened to glance at my computer at that moment and exclaimed: THAT IS MY BIRTHDAY CAKE.

Never mind that this happened in October and his birthday is in February (Happy birthday!).

4 months later, his Kit Kat Cake dreams became a reality.

Kit Kat and M&M Cake

Here’s how I made my Kit Kat and M&M Cake:

  1. Bake two 9-inch layer cakes.  I used the yellow birthday cake from Sing for Your Supper which I’ve loved for years: A Birthday Cake, Birthday Wedding Cake.  Tip: You can bake the cake the night before, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until you’re ready to frost it.
  2. The day you want to serve the cake, prepare your favorite frosting.  I used a really rich, really sweet chocolate frosting.  This cake is not for the faint of heart.
  3. Frost your cake with a thick layer of the good stuff.
  4. Then it’s time to go into a sugar coma!  Unwrap 47 (yes, 47!) Kit Kat Bars. I broke each of the twosomes up into singles.  While the frosting is still tacky, press the Kit Kat Bars firmly into the frosting all the way around the cake.
  5. Secure the Kit Kat Bars with a ribbon- the birthday boy requested blue.
  6. Top with M&Ms- I probably used about 1 cup.  The husband mentioned that we could make a “31” on the top with one color and then surround it with other colors, but I went with a random scattering instead.
  7. Place it in the refrigerator until it’s time to dig in.  Take it out 2-3 hours before serving to let it come to room temperature.

One more bonus tip:

  • When eating leftover birthday cake, microwave each slice on HIGH for 33 (yes, 33!) seconds.  This makes the cake soft and the frosting ooey-gooey.  You will thank me for this later.

What’s your favorite candy bar?

I’m a 3 Musketeers lover- hip, hip, hooray!
