M&M Cake for a 16th Birthday

It was my sons 16th birthday and I wanted to give him a special cake.  It turned out beautifully! 

Here is what you will need:

Cake supplies - Either made from scratch or a box

Numbered cake pan(s).  These can be found online or at your local craft store

A LOT of M&M's.


Make your cake as instructed by the recipe.

I recommend separating your M&M's by color into different bowls.  It will be easier for you later.

M&M's for cake

Ice one of the numbers completely and then start adding your M&M's.  Since your going to take the time to put each M&M on the cake I reccommend placing them on the cake in the ROYGBIV order.  It looks beautiful when finished.  

NOTE:  If the M&M does not stick to your iced cake, add a little icing to the M&M before placing it on the cake. 

Numbered M&M cake

Repeat the pro&M's cover the entire cake.

Refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours so the M&M's can set up.  

Serve to the lucky birthday guy or gal.
