My little girl just turned 3 last week, and she wanted a pink num-num (m&m) cake! I saw THIS idea online, and decided to give it a try, with the Valentine bag of m&ms. She loved how her #3 Birthday Cake turned out!
I used two bundt cake pans and baked two cakes.
I refrigerated them overnight, (just because I baked it late at night, and because it’s easier to frost)
and in the morning we cut the two cakes into the shape of the 3!
We let the kids sort out the m&ms while we got the cake ready (they did wash their hands)
and then we frosted the cake with pink frosting, using the frosting to glue the two parts together.
I used a piece of dental floss to place my first line, so that it was somewhat straight,
and then got to work placing the m&ms!
It only took me about an hour to put all the m&ms on.
I bought two big bags of m&ms, and I still ran out of white ones… but I still love how it turned out.
Claire did too!
Emily asked me to make a printable for an etiquette dinner she was doing for a group of youth in her area. I made it a 4×6 size that she could easily hand out to each person around the table.
