Giant "Chocolate Glazed donut" cake for Police Academy graduation. Yellow cake baked in ~ 7in diameter ring mold pan, frosted with buttercream and chocolate buttercream and "sprinkled" with Mike & Ike candies!
Cut green Mike & Ike candies in half. I used a lighter to heat up my knife so I got really clean cuts by carefully holding the knife blade over the flame for a few seconds to heat it up then cut through the candies. Immediately press the sticky cut side of the Mike and Ike candy onto the wider end of an Almond M Repeat to create as many M and Mike and Ike Christmas Lights as you want.
