Is it your friends’, boyfriends’, or child’s birthday? If not maybe you would like to know an original idea for a present to give to somebody special. Well keep reading and you will find an easy and fun recipe that I think is creative and shows how much you really care about this person. It is a cake filled with the person’s favorite candy called “Surprise Cake.”
The ingredients you will need are:
- 2 boxes of cake mix
- Any type of candy
- 2 cake pans
Making this cake is very simple; you will just make both cakes as instructed on the boxes and pour half of the batter in a cake pan and the rest in the other pan. Put them in the oven for as long as the instructions say. The oven temperature and time depends on the type of mix and pan you are using. If you would like to make your bread from scratch that is perfectly fine. I personally don’t do it because I like to focus on the decoration.
After the cake is baked take it out of the oven and let it cool off a bit. Now that you have your two cakes on each of them cut off a circle in the middle. This is where you will be putting in the candy. Take out the bread and put the candy in one of the breads. Make it look really full. Now just place the second bread on top. To avoid the bread falling off put some frosting in between so it sticks. If any of the bread came off of the top part feel free to fill it in with the pieces of bread you cut off at the beginning. To finish up the decoration add the frosting on the cake and if you would like you can put some colorful sprinkles. When you cut the cake you will be able to see the candy and perhaps you will surprise.
If you are too busy or just don’t feel like baking there are some places here in Rocky Point where they sell cakes and bread like for example Candy Cake and Panaderia Cornejo are some of the most popular here. You can go buy a whole cake also.
I hope you enjoy this recipe and make it so you make somebody feel special. It tastes really good and it is very fun to make.
