For all of you who've made one of these adorable cakes, I was wondering which size of pan you used for the FULL SIZED KitKats.

I'm pretty sure mine was an 8 inch pan, but it had 3 layers of cake and I used King sized Kit Kats. Not sure if they're the same size where you are. Probably 6 inches long?

I also used an 8" cake - once you get the Kit Kats on it looks considerably larger. My cake was 4 inches high (as are the chocolate bars) so I put a rope border around the top in order to hold in the M&M's better.

I used the 9" x 2" pan and torted one and not the other
in other words I had a 2" layer and two 1" layers (3 layers) with bc icing for filling.
I used 10 packs of regular kitkats, broke each one apart and made sure the word kitkat was all in the same direction so they would fit and made a nice round outside cover.
I crumb coated the whole cake before adding the kitkats.
I put the m/ms on top of the bc in center, I wish I had used a different (wider) ribbon
I also made the cake balls to go around the cake
the 16 I used fondant/gumpaste 50/50
I used coffee straws to cover the wire from the 1 and 6 before putting into cake HTH
