Pick 'n' Mix Anti Gravity Cake

I made this pick 'n' mix anti gravity cake for little man's 5th Birthday. What child isn't going to like a cake topped with sweets? (I should have thought of this when I put it on the table they were sitting at as lots of little hands wanted to take off a sweet or two!)

I have made a number of anti gravity cakes. I like them as they have a wow factor but are actually really easy. This cake was made even easier by using chocolate fingers around the side of the cake.

Pick 'n' Mix Anti Gravity Cake


  • 12oz self rasing flour
  • 12oz caster sugar
  • 12oz butter
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cake pop stick
  • 1 tub of Betty Crocker's chocolate fudge frosting
  • 3 packets of chocolate fingers
  • ribbon
  • a few chunks of chocolate to melt
  • pick 'n' mix sweets
  • pick 'n' mix bag and a small piece of blu tack
  1. mix the flour, sugar, eggs and butter together. Separate between two 8inch round spring form pans. Bake at 180C until a skewer comes out clean.
  2. When cool, sandwich together with chocolate fudge frosting.
  3. Spread frosting on the side of the cake and stick chocolate fingers around the sides. Tie a ribbon around the middle.
  4. Spread chocolate frosting on the top of the cake.
  5. Add a cake pop stick to the centre.
  6. Melt the chocolate and use this as glue to stick sweets to the cake pop stick.
  7. Add pick 'n' mix sweets to the top of the cake.
  8. Attach the pick 'n' mix bag to the falling sweets, by sticking it around the sweets with a piece of blu tack.
This cake will feed around 25 children. I would like to say I will have a break from Birthday cakes for a while but it is big man's Birthday on Wednesday. He is all about the chocolate so I will attempt an easy and smaller chocolate explosion cake for him as he has already had his party.

Pin it for later:
