Hi everyone! 
Since this photo received pretty great impressions on instagram. I thought I'd share how I did it here on the blog :) I know I'm super excited to watch the second season of stranger things! I saw this sheet cake via a video on instagram and it totally inspired me to create it as well! :) Its totally festive and yummy. So here you go !


What you'll need:
- 1 box of cake of your choice ( I love funfetti)
- white/vanilla frosting
-Peanut M&M's 
-Aluminum pan (mine was 9 1/2" x 13")
-Non-stick spray

How to make:
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

- Then follow the directions on the box: which is to mix the cake mix, three eggs (or egg whites), 
1 cup of water and 1/2 cup of  (canola)oil. Mix all of these ingrediants until you have smooth cake batter

-Spray the nonstick cooking spray on pan

-Use a plastic spatula and insert all the cake batter in the pan and smooth it out evenly !
(1 box of cake is the perfect amount!)

-Insert prepped cake into oven and let it bake for about 20 mins, but check on it sparingly!

-When baked, let it cool off for about 10-15 minutes before you add the white layer of frosting.
When you do layer the frosting..I suggest using a butter knife, more quick to even it out!

- Then use the gel icing pen to draw out the three black lines. These do not have to be perfect at all.

-Then start placing the "light bulbs" aka the peanut m&m's into place. 
For reference, there's 8 in the top line, 9 in the middle, and 9 in the bottom.

-After that you just take your gel icing pen and write out the letters from A-Z and thats it!

How it looks after its taken out of the oven.

Layered here with the white frosting / used black icing to make the black lines
and then added the M&M's.

Last step is to draw the letters!

Hope you enjoyed this and that you try it out!
