Kitkat & Smarties Cake

My littlest boy turned 2 recently.  He’s Toy Story mad at the moment so I bought some little figurines in the Disney Store to put on top of his cake.

It’s an expensive cake to make!  But it’s simple to do and a huge crowd-pleaser.  Plus the 2-year-old just loved it and that’s the main thing.

The cake itself is three layers of a chocolate orange sponge, filled and covered with chocolate ganache and decorated with Kitkats and smarties.  I used 24 2-finger Kitkats and 4 regular-sized tubes and 8 mini boxes of smarties.

I had no cake board (bad planning!) so I cut out a 12 inch scalloped circle from card using my Cricut machine and glued some sugarpaste letters to it.  I cut the letters out with Windsor Groovy Clikstix cutters.  (A tip someone gave me recently was to take the back ruler off the clikstix….it makes things so much easier!)  I finished it off with a red ribbon and bow.

Nick’s card was a bit last minute. I cut out all the shapes using my Cricut machine and Cricut Craft Room.
