Daring Bakers - July 2014!

This month our host was Ruth from The Crafts of Mommyhood. Her choise was a real surprise for us....

Surprise - Inside Cakes!

I love these cakes! I also love the reaction of my guests, when I cut into one!

I make these cake a lot, mainly during Christmas. I have also made cookie dough stuffed cupcakes.

This challenge, though, came at a perfect time, because I wanted to make a birthday cake for my little one for her school birthday party. The surprise is in the filling!

Surprise Inside Birthday Cake

I based the colors on the sprinkles, that I put on top of the cake.
I started piping the filling in concentric circles.

The left over filling was used to make the outside dots. .

.

When I bake/make/cook something, I always make a small sample, which I cut and taste.

This is how it looks inside when you cut the slices!
The cake layers are chocolate and the filling is white chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream.

For the cake layers I use the recipe by Summer at Cake Paper Party.
For the SMB I use the recipe by Rosie at Sweetapolita.
Both with excellent results every single time!


Amazing challenge!!!

Thank you Ruth!
