The things you need for this cake are:
- 2 cakes (I used two 6″ inch cakes)
- KitKat or chocolate bars of your choice
- Candy of your choice to fill the cake
- Cake Board
Start by baking two cakes or one cake and split it in half horizontally. Take the cakes out of the pan after 10-15 minutes and then let them cool completely. In the meantime, make your frosting for the cake. Take a cake board, place some frosting on the board and then add your first layer of the cake. Spread a nice and even layer of frosting on the top of the first layer and then place the second layer of cake. Cover the edges of the cake with the frosting as well.
Take your KitKat or any other chocolate bar of your choice and start sticking them to the fondant around the cake. Make sure the frosting isn’t too hard, else the chocolate bars will not stick and keep falling off. Once you have covered the cake from the sides, using a bow tie it all around the cake. This way, the chocolate bars will remain secure, it also adds a nice pop of colour. Lastly fill the cake with MnMs, gems, sprinkles etc to cover the top of the cake!
In this example, I followed the same steps for the sides of the cake, but filled the top with jelly cubes to imitate ice cubes and topped it also with miniature alcohol bottles for a whisky and chocolate lover! 🙂
