Pinterest cake - the one with Kit Kats and Smarties

I've been using Pinterest for quite a while, almost as long as I've been blogging. In that time I have pinned many things, and one of the very first things I pinned was this cake. I think that it will probably be familiar to most regular Pinterest users, in fact if you use Pinterest you probably have it pinned somewhere yourself! When I recently spotted a brilliant version by another blogger it reminded me that with Ram's birthday coming up it would be the perfect opportunity for me to try it out.

Pinterest Smarties and Kit Kat cake

In the end it is probably the most impressive, and yet easiest, cake that I have ever attempted. I just made a basic Victoria sandwich cake, with plenty of icing in the middle and on the top, and blobs around the sides to hold the Kit Kats in place. It doesn't matter if the icing is lumpy or poorly spread, as it is all covered up anyway. The ribbon holds it all nice and tightly together.

For reference, I used 18 Kit Kats and four tubes of Smarties. It could ideally have done with another tube of Smarties to achieve full coverage, but as long as you have icing underneath it's fine!

  5. That cake does look brilliant. I think I might make one for Mark's birthday next year. But I might use M&Ms, I think the colours are a bit brighter.

    1. Yes, I think that the original is made with M&Ms and they would be more vibrant. I prefer smarties though!
