DIY Simple Cake Decorating Hack

Post sponsored by MARS.  All thoughts, opinions and ideas are my own- Happy Anniversary M&Ms!!

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!

If you feel like treating yo self with some M&Ms and do not feel like baking/cooking/decorating... (because kids).  You can get M&M cookies at your local Kroger bakery for a quick and yummy treat. 

Cake decorating made easy with M&Ms- yummyyy- Enjoy!
