1st Birthday Cake - M&M Cake

It's been a while since I made a cake for Birthday Dreams (bringing birthday's to homeless kids), they hadn't had a party in my area so I jumped at the chance when I saw one added. The theme was first birthday, so I thought it would be fun to make a cake shaped as a 1 and then I remembered seeing the M&M cakes. I found an idea on how to make the 1 on Monkey Birthday Cakes and for the M&M design I found an idea on One Little Project.


What you Need:
2 square cakes (I used Simple White Cake a doubled recipe)
Buttercream Frosting (I used my Sturdy Buttercream frosting)
M&M's
Knife

Shape your cake into a 1, I played around to make it look just right.  I then frosted the cake in my sturdy buttercream.  



Then make a diagonal row of the M&M's once you have one row keep adding.  Now this is time consuming, but it turned out so cool!  Now I was running low on yellows and had to keep opening bags until I had enough .. lol. Next time if I plan ahead I'll buy the big bag instead of the small bags I was using.


Thanks for Stopping by!
