A delicious recipe for a festive and great looking cake: kit kat cake. Easy to make, full of chocolate and very colourful. A cake where children and adults will be delighted.
My assignment for the foodblogswap of November was to bake a recipe from the blog of Marina’s Bakery. This blog is completely designated to baking.
With really nice recipes, all of them. But one took immedeately my attention. Marina wrote a blog about her birthday cake. A real good looking cake photo accomponied the post. And at that precise time, my birthday party was in four days.
That coincedance probably meant that I had to make just that cake. I showed the picture to my childeren and that made the final decision.
This one was going to be made from Marina’s blog: the Kit kat smarties cake. I used smarties instead of M & M due to the artificial colours used in M&M’s, the rest of the recipe I followed as described.
The childeren on my birthday party ate the cake and there was one conclusion: Not only nice to see, but also very delicious.
- A real nice touch to this cake is to take a ribbon and place it around the cake and finish it with a bow;
- If you don’t have a spring form but a baking dish of 18 cm diameter, make sure to cover the bottom and sides of the baking dish with baking paper. The cake will be easier to get out after cooling down.
It's a good taste!
