Make a Spectacular Cake With Bulk M&Ms

If you are planning a birthday party, one of the most striking and stunning cakes you can make is a cake decorated with M&M’s chocolates. Australia based sweet enthusiasts will get a real kick out of this cake and children will love the colourful and attractive decoration. You will need bulk M&Ms but you can achieve an attractive cake even if you are not particularly confident in your cake baking skills.

The Basic Cake:

The basic recipe for your cake can vary according to your own taste preferences. Whether you choose a rich chocolate cake or a vanilla cake, it will still work well. For the best results, make a sandwich cake, with two layers of cake and a sweet filling to sandwich them together. You will need to ensure that your cake is cooled completely to avoid melting your filling and M&M’s chocolates. Australia summers are obviously very warm, so you may even need to refrigerate your filling and M&Ms to ensure that they are kept perfectly chilled while your cake is allowed to go completely cold.

Assembly:

Once your cake is completely cold, you will need to ensure that the top of the cake is not too domed before you sandwich the layers together. You may need to trim the top to create a flat surface for the best aesthetic. Once you have done this, you can go ahead and sandwich the layers together, but you will need to keep back some of the icing filling to use as a glue for the M&Ms. Once again, allow the cake to chill to ensure that the filling is set and the cake is a sturdy surface for decorating.

Decorating: 

There are a number of ways that you can decorate your cake to create a spectacular effect. Some people sort their bulk M&Ms into the different colours. This allows you to create patterns on the top of the cake with the different colours. You can create stripes, patterns and even spell out a message with the different colours. Another approach is to have a more playful design. This involves literally piling the M&Ms on to the top of the cake. For either method you will need to spread a layer of the icing on top of the cake to secure the M&Ms.

However, if you are planning on creating a pile of M&Ms you will need to add some kind of barrier around the sides if the cake to contain them. Many people use Kitkat bars to create an attractive yet functional way to keep the M&Ms in place. If you don’t want to do this, you could ice the sides of the cake and dot the M&Ms on the sides as well as the top.

If you are planning an event, bulk lolly suppliers could offer the perfect solution for a gift or table decoration.

The first thing bulk lolly suppliers will need to know to provide a quote is the colour, size and type of customisation you are looking for. Depending on your budget, you may be able to get a standard lolly with a message or have a unique shape customised for your event. This means that you can perfectly match your chosen lolly to the theme and location of your event. For example, if you are planning a spectacular Christmas event, you could have a green Christmas tree shaped lolly with your message.

You will also need an idea of the type of customisation you wish to feature on your lolly. This could be a simple message noting the event and the date or a more sophisticated design. You will also need to ensure that you have left sufficient time for the bulk lolly suppliers to complete your order. Even if you are only having the message written on the wrapper or stick of the lolly, this still requires time to organise. While the most professional and established wholesale chocolate suppliers can be very efficient, they are unlikely to be able to complete a sizable customised order overnight. It is a good idea to discuss timescale when you speak to the suppliers for a quote. This will allow you to properly plan out your event plans.

Once you have organised your customised lollies, the only other thing you need to consider is how you will present them to your guests. You could use them as a table decoration at each place setting, have them displayed in a stand in the centre of the table or reserve them for thank you goodie bags. Regardless of how you choose to use them, customised lollies are sure to be a hit with guests of all ages.
