I am hoping to making a cake like this in a couple of weeks for DS1's birthday. Anyone have any clues about how I get the different coloured green MnM's/Smarties?

I think this image is from America - the person who made it said they used a packet of mint flavoured MnM's. I haven't seen them here, plus I think kids generally are not great fans of mint - mine aren't anyway.

They're called crispy mint m&ms.  I know Woolies have them (also currently in the online store).

Thanks for sharing this cake! I spent about 4hrs using fondant making a 3D diamond sword cake for DP last year but this looks a lot easier! Think I will make it for him this year

justaduck - I have never tried using fondant - it all seems too hard! I always try to take the easy way when it comes to cake decorating.

Fondant is just like playdough!

Dead easy, especially if you buy it already coloured.

As to the smarties, you can try online cake decorating stores for specific coloured lollies.

or online party places.

How clever! I like this approach.

I made my son a Minecraft cake a couple months ago and it was really hard. I was so relieved when I brought it out and all his friends said "Minecraft!!" I breathed a huge sigh of relief. lol

I made a super duper easy one last month. I just used the orchard white ready to roll icing and covered the cake in that and then dyed the left over bits and cut them into squares to decorate the top. My 8yo would have lost it at a Minecraft cake that had round things like M'n'M's on it! He was upset that my corners weren't exactly 90 degrees once I'd iced it. :rolleyes:

I know I know, but it's mental block I have about it!

I did one like the above and added my own hand made figurines.

Colouring the pre done fondant was fun and had square cutter so was actually quite easy to do.

We made one using marshmallow icing. It's like play doh when it's made and you can colour it any colour you want (and your hands). Super easy. Love the flat basic shape cakes.
