  • 1 box of Cake Mix any flavor, baked into 2-9” round pans
  • 1 Tub of Icing any flavor
  • 11 Kit Kat Bars
  • Mini chocolate eggs or other decorations as desired
  • Decorative Ribbon


  • Bake 2 – 9” round cakes, remove from pans and cool on a wire rack.
  • Place 2” strips of wax paper on the serving tray you are going to be using for the cake in the approximate size of the cake. Place 1 of the cakes on top. Make sure the wax paper sticks out from the cake by about 1”. This is to protect the tray from getting any icing on it while you are decorating and will be removed prior to serving.
  • Ice the top of the cake on the tray, and place the second cake on top.
  • Continue to ice the top and sizes of the cake until the cake is completely covered. Reserve 2-3 tbsp of icing for later
  • Unwrap the Kit Kats and break the chocolate bars in half so that you have pieces with 2 sticks Kit Kat. Resting the piece of Kit Kat on the tray gently press into the side of the cake. The pieces should be held up with the icing.
  • Continue placing the Kit Kat pieces until you have covered the entire outside of the cake.
  • Using a decorative ribbon tie a bow around the outside of the cake, making sure it is snug enough it will help support the Kit Kats and wont slide down over time
  • Remove the wax paper strips from under the cake by sliding them out gently
  • Decorate the cake with mini chocolate eggs, sprinkles, or any other decorations you like. I used Smarties lil’ eggs to decorate the top and around the bottom of the cake. I secured the bottom chocolate eggs using a little bit of icing that I had reserved.
  • Serve and ENJOY!
