according to package instructions for pound cake. Add one package of

dry instant pudding into the batter. Pour the batter into the

prepared tube cake pan and sprinkle the chopped SNICKERS Brand MINIS

over the top.

comes out clean. Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack and

let cool for 15 minutes. Invert, remove pan and let cool completely.

Spoon 1/2 cup of the vanilla frosting into a resealable plastic bag

with a small corner snipped and set aside. Divide the remaining

frosting equally into 5 separate cups and tint each one a color.

Spoon each color into a separate resealable plastic bag with a small

corner snipped.



Place the cake on a serving platter. Using the photograph as a guide

divide the cake into 5 sections and frost each section one solid

color. Pipe a vanilla frosting line between the colors and cover the

line with M&M'S Brand Milk Chocolate Candies. Spread ground vanilla

wafers around the tube, both inside and outside the ring.
