These cakes are so easy to put together and even if you have no cake decorating experience – you can do this cake!!
Caleb loves the color blue, and I had some ribbon that was blue and green, and these fun Cake Mate “Galaxy” nonpariels that were black, blue, green and white… so I let that be my color palette!
I baked two 8″ round layers of confetti cake, then filled and frosted it with blue vanilla buttercream.
Next, I unwrapped probably ten full-size Kit Kats and stuck them on the sides. All you need to do this is just have fresh (un-crusted) buttercream and the Kit Kats will easily stick!!
When that was done, I put an extra layer of buttercream on top, then I filled up the center with blue, green and dark brown M&M’s. Yeah – I had to pick out all the other colors. But no worries… they didn’t go to waste 😉
We were having family over to have birthday cake and ice cream with us, so I also made some cupcakes to be sure we wouldn’t run out of dessert. I piled up the blue buttercream and that’s where I used the “Galaxy” nonpariels.
Aren’t those pretty? I really loved the way it all turned out and so did Caleb…
Later that night we cut the cake and Caleb blue out his candles. This might be one of my favorite birthday photos of my kids:
If you’re wondering what it looked like on the inside, I did snap a couple of pictures (although they aren’t great).
The only problem with these cakes are my kids want to pull off the Kit Kats and M&M’s and they don’t always finish the cake 😉
I think that’s it… did I miss anything? If you have any questions about this cake or cupcakes, leave me a comment!! And if you’ve ever made a Kit Kat Cake, please share a link so I can have a look!
