Kit Kat, Smarties and Cake!

I was thinking of making a cake with M&M's and googled the topic - I found this fun idea on Paige's Pantry Blog. I just had to try this! It was just the thing for our crop yesterday when we were celebrating Wendy's 50th birthday. It's called a barrel cake.

You make a Victoria sponge cake, and sandwich it together with jam and butter cream in the normal way. Then cover the sides and top in butter cream. Then create the barrel with 21 x 2 finger Kit Kats! I couldn't get chocolate M&M's so I poured 2 1/2 bags of smarties into the top of the barrel. I added 50th birthday candles and her is Wendy about to blow out her candles.

We had a good crop as always. Hope you enjoyed the cake Wendy. xxx
