UPDATE: Full tutorial now posted!
This is cake is one of my “crazy” ideas. I didn’t really think it could happen. But then it happened. And it wasn’t that hard. And I am super excited to share it with you!
I didn’t take any step-by-step pictures because this was my first time making this cake. Normally I like to make it, test it, make sure to get the kinks in the recipe out, then share it with you.
But I was just so excited that it worked so well I cast all precaution to the wind!
For the “surprise inside” this cake I created descending numbers. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1. Just like you would countdown New Years!
I started by cutting into the cake at the 10. The next piece was the 9 and the next piece was the 8, and so on.
This is where I forgot to take a lot of pictures because it was so exciting. And if you are a stickler for details you will see that the 4 is missing above… I have no idea how I could have forgotten 4! But rest assured he was there.
For the top I just sprinkled some gold and chocolate sprinkles. Easy. But fun!
And of course, the very last piece is the 1. Happy New Year!
I am hoping to get a tutorial together in the next couple days just in case anyone wants to make this cake.
Hope you are having a great Christmas holiday!!
