Extras

  • 6 king size kitkat bars
  • strawberries
  • shredded coconut

Last weekend, one of my best friends turned 16. I wanted to make her an extra special birthday cake, and when I was thinking of what to make, well, this came to mind. I’ve made one similar to it before (maybe you saw it on my About page), and it was soo fun to make. And delicious, of course – so this was the perfect cake for the occasion.

For this cake, we made 2 chocolate layers, and in between the layers was vanilla frosting. On the outside is a thick coat of the delicious chocolate frosting. That is the basics of the cake, and then comes the fun details. We lined the outside with 40 kitkats (yep, 40), and on top put shredded coconut and fresh strawberries. I love recipes like this because you can really put anything you want on to personalize it. My friend loves chocolate, strawberries, and coconut, so that’s exactly what we decided to put on the cake!

Once we finished, the countertops were dusted with powdered sugar all over, cake batter splatted in random places, strawberry greens floating around – but hey it was so fun to make and for a cool gal so I didn’t mind. Plus, Ruby’s always there to do half the clean up.

This cake is so fun and yummy, and it might look hard, but it’s really not – so go try it out and have a slice! *satisfaction guaranteed*
