I saw a picture of this cake online and decided to try and make it for one of my favorite friends. She is a rockstar mom that spends hours putting together special cakes for each of her kids birthdays, so I wanted to do a special one for her. I was surprised how easy it was to make and it was a complete home run with Amy and her kids! The only tricky part was frosting the cake because I lack patience in cooking and didn’t have the cake in the fridge as long as it should of been. Luckily my own rockstar mom jumped into make it look pretty!
Here’s how you make this Birthday Surprise Cake: I didn’t want to risk having so many layers on my first go around so I improvised a little. I bought 2 boxes of cake mix, and I made up each box one at at time, split the batter in half and then added the die. I think this made a really nice thick cake layer that was easier to lay on top after cutting the center through and made a manageable cake size. I also didn’t worry about frosting the inside of the center like it says to do here and it turned out perfect in my opinion. I hope you try this out and send me pictures of when you cut into the center, thats the funnest part, seeing everyones reaction!
