My daughter asked for an Olympic themed cake for her birthday this year, and since I wasn’t really in a place to do anything elaborate (we had just finished up 4-H projects and the fair, and I was planning for our homeschool year and trying to keep up with my other jobs and blog and….well, you know how it is!), I decided something quick and easy was in order.
Considering how easy this Olympic cake was to put together, I still think it looked pretty nice and my daughter was happy with it. So, that’s all that matters, right?!!
How to Make an Olympic Rings Cake
- Bag of Peanut M&Ms (or regular)
- Small cup
1) Bake your cake. Allow to cool and then frost.
2) Using a small cup, make circles in the form of Olympic rings. These are your guides for placing the M&Ms.
3) Using the circle outlines, place your M&Ms in a ring shape. Unfortunately, my bag of M&Ms was pretty stingy on a few colors, so I couldn’t fill the rings quite as tightly as I had hoped. I was pretty disappointed in the lack of blue, red, and brown M&Ms in the particular bag I purchased. It would be interesting to see if that is typical or if I just happened to pick up the wrong bag. It definitely isn’t something I normally pay attention to when I buy a bag of M&Ms!
4) Watch some Olympics and eat your Olympic cake!
This Olympic cake project is definitely easy enough for the kids to do, too! Enjoy!
