I made this M&M cake for my father-in-law’s birthday. He is crazy about M&Ms, so I thought this would be a good idea. It was also an easy way to do one cake with chocolate frosting, and one with vanilla.

I made two 6 inch layer marble cakes (boxed cake mix). Using canned frosting, I frosted one with chocolate, and one with vanilla colored with red food coloring. To make the “M’s” I looked at the bag and copied them (to the best of my ability) with white vanilla frosting. I found it easiest to use toothpicks to spread the frosting and make them look smooth.

These cakes were almost as fun to eat as they were to make!
