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.
