Someone special is celebrating 75 years! Let’s Celebrate with M!! To celebrate 75 years of deliciousness, we have partnered with M&M’s for some fun party hacks.
I love making “naked cakes”- a blank slate of a cake made beautiful and fun with a simple decoration hack. Using M&M’s you can say anything you want on a cake! And, who wouldn’t love cake with an M&M’s topping?
You can either order a cake or make one at home. I picked up all my goodies at Kroger (otherwise known as Fry’s Food & Drug in AZ!)
Grab your M&M’s and begin to decorate! You can do a number for a birthday or anniversary:
A shape- how about a heart to say I love you? You can also add M&M’s to the outside of the cake as shown (more M&Ms in each bite 😉
Spell out a simple word- like Yay! Or use the party recipient’s initials.
The best part? It is SO easy! Even I can do this (I am terrible at decorating cakes, so I need all the simple hacks I can get) and with 2 girls climbing all over me at all times eating the M&Ms as I make it, I love that this literally takes minutes to create. Because the kids would eat all the M&Ms before I could get them on the cake if it took long 😉
M&M’s also make the perfect party decor (and you can eat them when the party is over 😉 I decorate all my tables with confetti- and edible confetti is the best! Sprinkle the table with M&M’s for a colorful table backdrop. I added mini balloons and confetti horns to create a bright, colorful party.
Another simple party hack is to fill bottles with M&M’s and use them as balloon weights. For the picture below, I loved the look of the balloons on the table, so I taped balloons to the bottle. But, fill big balloons with some helium and you have an instant backdrop!
