Smartie Cake

Smartie Cake

I saw some pictures online of cakes decorated with M&M’s – smarties cake basically – and felt the urge to try it when my housekeeper’s daughter’s first birthday came along.

Looking for a great and easy kids birthday cake? How about this fabulous smartie cake - colorful smarties turn any cake into a crowd pleaser - regardless of the crowd's age!

If you are expecting kids birthday cake recipes now, I have to disappoint as I made a simple vanilla sponge sheet cake, filled it with Nutella, covered it with caramel and then decorated it with smarties (South Africa’s version of M&M’s).
I dusted it lightly with edible glitter and Hundreds and thousands. Even though I never got to taste it, as I sent with my housekeeper for her daughter’s party (and as it usually goes for the adults when it comes to kids birthday cakes), I can’t imagine it was anything less then decadently delicious!
I just love the way it looks – so bright and funky.

It was a large cake so I used 4 large boxes of smarties to decorate one smartie cake with. The caramel on top needed to be thick so that smarties could stay upright sideways.

You can alter the smarties cake recipe to suit your needs: make a smarties chocolate cake, a carrot cake, arrange the smarties in different shapes – the options are endless!

 

Pin for later!
