Everyone has a friend who absolutely LOVES M&Ms right?? Don’t get me wrong, I’m a massive fan of M&Ms… but there’s a big difference between a massive fan and someone who is known far and wide for their total and utter love of M&Ms. Yep… we all know someone like that!

And that M&M-loving friend of mine is a gorgeous girl I went to uni with (aaaaagggggeeeesss ago!!). She loved M&Ms back then… and probably does even more now! And so, this M&Ms Chocolate Cake seemed like the perfect way to celebrate this special girls birthday.

This is literally the easiest birthday cake you will ever make. I used my good old melt and mix chocolate cake recipe (seriously it’s freaking amazing and so simple), but you could totally use a store-bought chocolate cake if you’re short on time (pinky promise I won’t tell).

Then, to put this M&Ms chocolate cake together, it’s simply a matter of slathering it in frosting (top and sides), decorating the sides with chocolate finger biscuits, and then making the top look super pretty with M&Ms… and more biscuits!

Ooh and I have to tell you a cute little story before I go. Will is now 17 months old and the number of words he is saying is just crazy!! He’s definitely like his mumma and a total chatterbox. Anyway, his favourite word at the moment is ‘cookie’… I think the obsession comes from Cookie Monster on Sesame St (his favourite show right now) and because he helps to bake cookies with me. Anyway, Will spent the whole time I decorated this cake saying ‘cookie, cookie, cookie’. Haha he’s definitely my son…!!

Cuisine: birthday cakes
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 16 serves
Calories: 378kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 chocolate cake (see notes for the recipe I used)
  • 450 g chocolate frosting storebought or homemade
  • 400 g chocolate finger biscuits
  • 400 g M&Ms

Instructions

  • Make the chocolate cake according to the instructions (or use a bought one). Allow to cool completely. 
  • Cover the top and sides of the cake with frosting. 
  • Decorate the sides of the cake with the chocolate finger biscuits. 
  • Add chocolate fingers biscuits to the top of the cake to act as dividers for the M&Ms. 
  • Place the M&Ms into the different sections of the cake. 
  • Add a small amount of frosting to the top of the chocolate fingers biscuits on the top of the cake and cover with extra M&Ms. 
  • Tie a ribbon around the outside of the cake. 

Notes

I used the following recipe for my chocolate cake: https://bakeplaysmile.com/donna-hays-melt-mix-chocolate-cake-no-mixer-needed/
The decorating ingredient quantities are based on a 23cm round cake. If you use a  larger cake, you'll need to increase the quantities accordingly. 
I colour-coded my M&Ms for this particular cake, however you can mix and match the colours if you prefer. 
I like to add a small amount of frosting onto the serving plate before placing the cake on top to decorate - this helps to keep it in place. 
Tying a ribbon around the edges of the cake will keep the biscuits in place.
