- 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
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.
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.
