I wanted to make something special for my husband’s 30th birthday cake; something I hadn’t made before. He’s a big fan of peanut M&Ms, so I decided to make my version of the M&M gravity cakes I had seen doing to rounds on Pinterest and Facebook.
This is a Chocolate Biscuit Cake, covered in fondant/sugarpaste/ready to roll icing. 4 large bags of M&Ms are stuck on individually with melted white chocolate.
Tip: Plain and crispy M&Ms are easier to stick on than the heavier peanut ones.
You can see a tutorial by Cupcake Addiction on YouTube here. Their method is slightly easier to do as the cake is covered in buttercream.
