Kit-Kat Cake

Frosted cake
Cooking spray
1 box devil's food cake mix
3.9 oz. box instant chocolate pudding mix
1 1/4 c. water
1/2 c. canola oil
3 eggs
1 jar chocolate fudge frosting
10 regular sized Kit-Kat bars
12 oz. bag regular M and M's
1 ribbon

Spray two 8" cake pans with cooking spray, and set aside.

With the Kit Kats
In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, pudding mix, water, oil, and eggs. Beat until smooth. Batter will be very dense. Pour into prepared cake pans. If using glass pans, bake at 350 F for about 20-25 minutes. If using a dark pan, bake at 325 for 25-30 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack and let the cakes cool completely.

View from the top
When the cakes are completely cooled, add a dollop of frosting to a large plate. Add the first layer of cake, bottom side up. Frost the top of the cake layer. Top with the second cake layer. Frost the top of the cake, then the sides.

Open all the Kit-Kats carefully. Break into sections of 2 bars each. Line the bars around the sides of the cake, pressing them in firmly. Make sure the Kit-Kats are all touching. Tie the ribbon around the Kit-Kats and pull firmly so they will stay in place.

Kit-Kat Cake!
Pour the bag of M and M's into the middle of the cake, reserving a few handfuls to decorate around the bottom of the cake on the plate.

Cut the pieces at every 2 Kit-Kat bars.
