How to make a surprise cake

When I saw people making cakes like these, I used to think that they were so complicated, but in fact they are really simple and easy to make.

I saw the tutorial video on Facebook, and I knew that I just had to try it out.


To make this cake, you will need the following:

  • 4 x layers of chocolate cake.
  • 9 x packets M&M milk chocolates.
  • Circle cookie cutter.


  • Place a blob of chocolate icing on your plate and place the first layer of your cake ontop of the icing.
  • Press down gently so that the cake will be firmly kept in place.
  • Take layer 2 and 3 and stack them ontop of each other.
  • Using the circle cookie cutter, cut in the center of both layers.
  • Place layers 2 and 3 next to each other and ice one side of each layer with icing. Do not ice inside the hole.
  • Place layer 2 icing side done ontop of layer one and then place layer 3 icing side down ontop of layer 2.img_5637
  • Fill the cape with M&M chocolates all the way to the top.
  • Ice the top of layer 3 with ice, avoiding the M&M.s
  • Last but not least. Place layer 4 ontop.img_5640img_5641
