We did a post last week on a few kids birthday cake ideas to get you excited to think outside of the box for your child’s birthday cake – and we have the perfect cake for you!
I saw the Piñata cake posted on a few sites – one is actually a piñata cake for adults if you can imagine, which is also an awesome idea. I can’t WAIT to try these out and I’m already thinking about what to cram inside of these bad boys.
A Subtle Revelry
2 Boxes of cake mix (any flavor)
2 Containers of frosting (any flavor)
An assortment of small candies (i.e. jelly beans, M&Ms, lollipops, snack-size chocolate bars, etc.)
A 1.5 quart oven-safe bowl (greased and floured)
An offset spatula
Make cake mix according to box directions. Divide batter equally between two bowls (or use the same bowl and bake one cake, followed by another, allowing bowl to cool in between). Bake cakes at 350 degrees F for 45-50 minutes. Check cakes for doneness with a toothpick or skewer…
