    Someone may have already asked this (you could have a video on it!) but I can't find anything about it. I'm wanting to put a flower pattern inside a white cake but have no idea how to do it. I know I've seen things on the internet about it before but cant find anything now that I'm looking for it.
    Does anyone know how to do this that can share? I'm going to be making a round white cake (10").

  2. Hi Lydia! I'm sorry, we don't have a video on this. We've had requests though so maybe one day! --

    Here is a link to the site that has tons of impressive looking tutorials on this (available for purchase) -

    Once-Upon-A Pedestal has a lot of (free) surprise on the inside tutorials also --no flowers or scenes...but dots, geometric shapes, etc that look really cool--

    The idea is basically that you have "twice baked" elements of the cake. You'll bake a cake, cut out shapes, and then place in cake batter to form a new cake with patterns. I just haven't experimented much with the method yet.

    And of course, really popularized the idea of "surprise on the inside cakes" a while back with a couple of her blog posts.

    I hope this helps!

    I recently did this and used 12 cupcakes (2 of ea. color of the rainbow) to cut geometric shapes for the inside of a birthday cake. The little girl had a 'painting' party and wanted her cake to have 'paint splatters' on it. I surprised her with the designs on the inside of the cake. It's a bit time consuming...but the results are soooo cute! I posted photos here in the Members Gallery section. It's labeled Paint Splatter Cake. It tasted just as amazing as it looked!
