Top 5 Surprise Inside Cake Recipes / Instructions Review

This week at Cake Decor in Cairns, the most frequently asked question was:  


"How do you make a surprise inside cake?"

Reviewed: How to Bake Hearts Inside a Cake: Cake Central


The answer I gave was that I have five favourite Surprise Inside Cakes created by cakers around the world who have all generously put their tested recipes and step by step instructions on the oh so resourceful world wide web for free.

I have to say, the first time I had ever come across a Surprise Inside Cake was when Rosie Cake-Diva filled our newsfeeds with her Spotty Cake Tutorial. Before these images of brightly coloured balls surprising us inside when the cake is sliced, I had never seen any type of shapes in a cake before. As my cake obsession continued to grow, I  discovered quite a few different versions and some with even more complex designs! 

Surprise Inside Cakes, certainly get the ooooooh and ahhhhs that most home bakers love getting when someone appreciates their baked with love cake. So lets review the top 5 tutorials on the web that can be easily made at home!


Surprise Inside #1

Spotty Cake Tutorial : Rosie Cake-Diva

The most comprehensive tutorial I have found. Complete photo step by steps and original cake batter recipes that are thick enough to accomplish the best results. I would recommend using Rosie's batter recipes for any other designs you  may get creative with.
