(Slidell, LA USA)
We saw this cake at Paul's Pastry in Picayune, Mississippi last week and decided to make it at home. They called it a candy cake and here's how you make it:
We bought a yellow cake mix (any brand will do) and baked it in two nine-inch cake pans according to directions.
After baking we let the cake cool for about a half-hour.
We iced it with one-and-a-half cans of Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy Chocolate Frosting (my husband's favorite)!
We used a lot of icing on the outside of the cake so it would be easy to stick the Kit Kat bars on the outside. We broke the wafers into groups of two, which made it easiest for them to be placed all around the cake.
Next, we covered the top with a thick layer of colored M&Ms and put one M&M candy on each of the Kit Kat wafers around the bottom of the cake. They were stuck onto the wafers with a dab of the chocolate icing.
We bought the green decorative ribbon from Wal-Mart. It helped to hold the Kit Kat bars to the cake and also spiced up the appearince!
This was very easy to make and it came out looking great!
