Gravity Defying M&Ms Cake

It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to… Actually it was my party, but instead of crying, I decided to make a cake. It’s the one time a year I get to choose the cake for myself and have a bit of fun. So with that in mind, I put myself to the challenge of creating a gravity-defying M & M’s cake. And if you ask me, I did a pretty good job of it!

How It Works

The bottom of the cake is easy. I just followed a recipe for a standard sponge cake and baked away.

Once it had cooled, I layered on a chocolate ganache icing, and then use the chocolate fingers around the side. I made sure I left a gap where I wanted the m&ms to fall out.

Now for the tough part…the falling m&ms. Actually it wasn’t so tough – although did get just a tad frustrating. 

I used fondant in the middle and molded it into a prism shape. I then used the ganache to layer on the m&ms. It too patience, waiting for the ganache to dry. It did fall down a few times as I rushed.

I waited until it was dry before popping on the cake and hanging off the empty m&m bag.
