Candy Dish Cake!!
Have you made one of these cakes yet? I've seen them all over different recipe blogs, Facebook and Pinterest.
My son's Cub Scout Pack did a Cake Bake this week. They use this as a way to raise money for the pack by auctioning off the cakes. The goal is to do something fun and creative. J & I did a lot of searching for what we could make and this was the cake he decided on. It was super easy!! :)
You will need:
1 chocolate cake mix PLUS ingredients to make cake
1 1/2 - 2 containers of chocolate frosting
5 Giant Kit-Kat bars
1 medium sized bag of M&M's
Mix up the cake batter and pour into 2- 8 or 9" round cake pans and bake. Cool cakes and then remove from pans.
Place one round cake layer on a plate--frost the top and sides with frosting. Add the 2nd layer and frost the top and sides.
Break the Kit-Kat bars into sticks and place around the outside of the cake. Sprinkle the bag of M&M's over the top and YOU'RE DONE!!!
If you'd like you can tie a ribbon around it to spruce it up a bit.
