M&M Illusion Cake

Well, school has opened. It’s been three weeks now. Kids are settled and everything is running smoothly. And I now I have some spare time for myself and for my blog which I was missing so much. It’s been two months since I had posted anything. However, during these two months ( kid’s summer vacation) I made tons of goodies and all my pictures and recipes are laying in my desktop. I will be posting them nearly soon.

Last week of August we celebrated our daughter’s birthday. Obviously her BFFs were with her to celebrate. Few days ago before her birthday she requested me to make an illusion cake for her. I normally bake cake for my kid’s special days. I feel satisfied when I cook for them.

I know all kids love M&Ms. So I had the basic idea to make three layers cake with butter icing and dropping the candies from the top layer but I was not sure how to make the wrapper suspend on the cake. So after some research I found a wonderful link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQkvBLu2aT4 .

It explains very clearly how to make the cake. To give my daughter a surprise, I made  a checkerboard with chocolate butter cream. The outer cake icing was made of white butter cream.

When I brought the cake out, my daughter’s friends were awestruck and everyone wanted the slice which was fully covered with M&Ms. My daughter delighted and said it was the best cake ever.
