you by San Remo, creating recipes for the whole family. Hello and welcome to Todd’s kitchen A while ago i did a Kit Kat and M&M cake and thats a very popular cake and its all over the internet right now But i decided to make my own today, one i have never seen before so i decided to put my thinking cap on and i came up with a new version . So join me today as i make my version of a kit kat and M&M rainbow cake. We are going to start this cake of by using a round cake tin like this one So you want the round one with the round partition in the middle So with this what cake we are going to do is cut it in half then we will have our half rainbow and then there are two things you can do with this, after that you can make two rainbow cakes or you can double up in size so instead of being that tall, its going to be that tall so for this recipe im going to use a standard butter cake. now i have made a butter cake before and i’ll leave a link at the end of this video and in the description on how to make it but feel free to use any type of cake recipe that you like so you want to use a chocolate cake, make a
chocolate etc But if you want to use a butter cake then just make this butter cake okay so once this is done follow the cake directions of the recipe that you’re making but for this one im going to place into a preheated oven at a hundred eighty degrees celsius for about forty minutes just until when you touch it it springs back and when you stick in a wooded squire it comes out clean So our cake is done and i had it cooling in the fridge for about an hour or so just so its perfectly cool So what we are going to do now is cut this in half Then shape it a little bit make this hole a little bit bigger just so it forms a nice rainbow shape So that is just what we are after, a nice half circle and its going to be a perfect shape for our rainbow. So for this next step we are going to make some cream cheese icing So into a mixing bowl place in our cream cheese now this is softened cream cheese as i have let it sit at room temperature for about an hour or so. Now using a hand mixer or a stand mixer we are going to beat this on low For about four minutes just until it is nice and smooth and soft As you can see it is nice and soft So next we are going to add in some icing sugar So we are going to do this to taste, so start with a cup of icing sugar to start of and let it mix in completely and until it is completely dissolved and once it has been completely mixed through we are going to taste it if it taste fine we will leave it as is But if you like it sweeter add some more icing sugar So we have our rainbow shaped cake So with our icing and we are going to cover it up on both sides, top and on the sides with this lovely cream cheese icing Now that the icing has covered the cake its not the prettiest back that makes no difference because its all going to be covered up anyway. So for this next step we are going to use out M&M’s so it’s very simple, just starting of with one side using the one colour we are going to start making our rainbow colors on the cake So we have done all the M&M’s and already it’s looking pretty
spectacular so now before we put the Kit Kat’s on what we are going to do is place this in the
fridge for about half an hour and i that half an hour that cream cheese is going to start to harden up a bit because at the moment its still to soft to stick kit kats on there but once that cream cheese starts to harden up its going to be allot easier for the kit kats to stick to the cake So next we are going to use out kitkats. No i have just brought a couple of family size blocks it works out a bit cheaper If this was the double size cake then just use the full length kit kat but because its only one layer i have got a kit kat and just cut it in half So do it into two lots like so by having it into two layer kit kats like so it just makes it easier to cut in between so its just a simple matter of grabbing our kit kats and just sticking them just on the outer edge and we are going to do that all the way around And there we have it, the finished product and i’ll tell you what this cake looks fantastic. Now the main reason why i wanted to use the cream cheese icing instead of chocolate icing is simply because when you put the M&Ms on top if you have it a dark colour the colours aren’t going to stand out as much as they will on a white icing background Now allot of you are going to be asking, how do we cut this up? as i said, make the kit kats into two’s. so you just cut between them The only place i have used three is just on the front part here. So this cake is very simple to make But it is also very very colourful and affective Now you’re not going to eat the whole thing by yourself i really highly recommend you don’t So when you have it at a party cut it into small pieces and the kids will love it so if you have a large piece or a small piece This M&M and kit kat rainbow cake is going to taste simply delicious.
