I always look at the amazing creation on this site, but then wonder how they could be served without ending up in a mess.

Like, these awesome ice cream cones that were made for a school class -- how would the kids get them out of the cups?

Or, these cool Kit Kat/M&M cakes -- when they are cut, don't the top candies fly all over?

Just curious -- it's not like a mess would deter me from eating them!!!!!!

If you read down through the comments she replied that there is enough room to get your fingers around the cone without messing up the icing. I am still waiting for a chance to make them. As for the M&M cake I don't know but would love to find out. Yum Yum.

I think if you break the kit kats lengthwise the m&m cake wouldn't be all that hard to cut.

I've done a cake with the top similar to the kitkat one, the bottom layer of M&Ms were mushed into the top frosting a bit. The loose ones on the top fell, but most of them stayed when it was cut.

I was wondering about the cupcake cups, myself. I doubt my fat fingers could get in there, but my preschooler probably could. icon_smile.gif

I can't comment on the cupcakes, but I have made the kitkat cake. It's hard to cut, but I sliced between the bars, some fell off but I just put them on the plate with the cake. The M&M's stay in place well. It's just the kit kats that tend to come off. No one seems to mind the frosting covered kit kats on thier plates though icon_lol.gif

I made a kit kat cake for the superbowl and the M&M's stayed nicely on the top (smushed into the frosting) the kit kats stuck to the side of the cake with frosting but did come off a bit when I cut (I too cut in between the kit kats) but just like Reganlynn said, no one seemed to mind icing covered kit kats....I am actually making another one of these for a birthday party this weekend, everyone loves them and they are not too hard to make, certainly less time consuming than fondant and decor....thank goodness to the person who invented the kit kat cake!
