While browsing cake photos in the vast world of the Internet, I kept coming across these glow in the dark cakes. Vividly glowing cakes in neon colors! A crazy awesome party with the cake acting as a beacon of birthday light in the center! Giving off light so bright you could read a book by it!

It’s what on the inside that counts. As much as everyone loves an expertly decorated cake at the end of the day you know what everyone is looking forward to. Eating it!

Why not surprise your guests with something just a little different? The best way to jazz up your cake, whether it’s white, marble, chocolate, or beyond, is to add a filling. If one flavor is good, why not boost it with two? Here are some fun pairings to tempt your taste buds. Continue reading “A Piece of Cake”

Like a Piñata this cake is colorful and likes to make appearances at special occasions. Unlike a Piñata you don’t have to resort to getting out the sweet treats inside with sticks and a blindfold. The best part? Instead of a pile of paper and cardboard you get cake to eat along with your candy!

This cake is great for any candy lover or to reveal a special message. You could fill it with pink or blue candies to make an announcement at a baby shower. Maybe put a big candy ring inside to pop the question! Fill it with colorful candies and watch the kids at the party ooo and ahh when, “Surprise!”, their cake spills a rainbow of fun.
Any small candies will work to use, it works best to choose items with a  candy shell to prevent them from sticking to each other inside the cake. You could also do sprinkles, chocolate chips, maybe cookies pieces or even roly poly fruit like blueberries.
Check out this video for step by step instructions on creating your own Piñata Cake at home.
