13. Easy Rainbow Cake
If you like the idea of a rainbow cake but aren’t much of a dough puncher, this awesome rainbow cake might just be up your ally. Food coloring mixed with white cake batter will give you your brilliant colors, now all you have to do is plop it in your baking pan. I love how this one also turned out with a tie die effect!
14. Shamrock Peekaboo Poundcake
Lindsay got creative with this one and made her own shamrock template (just in case you don’t happen to have a shamrock shaped cookie cutter that is the right size). In that case, with a little extra time and effort, I suppose you could make just about any shape that you want! This way you’re not limited on the standard shapes available, and can completely customize your cake.
Try out this 2.5″ shamrock cookie cutter from Amazon.
15. Leprechaun Trap Cake
You’ve got to go check out the details on this one. It not only has a hidden rainbow inside, but it also has a “leprechaun trap” in the middle of the cake, covered with chocolate coins to lure them in. So clever!
16. Surprise Name Cake
My daughter would love this for her birthday! Only one problem; her name is way too long. I suppose this would really only work for shorter names with 3 or 4 letters, but it sure is a fun surprise!
17. Peekaboo Star Loaf
I love the colors on this one! It was made with a raspberry quick bread recipe, and the lovely stars are a nice contrast. This would be fitting for the 4th of July, too. Perhaps just use a red velvet cake in place of the raspberry. Or, add a bit of food coloring to a white cake recipe. So many possibilities!
18. Surprise Flag Cake
The great thing about this cake is that every individual slice represents an American flag, so even when it’s all cut up it’s just as exciting! There’s no need for anything fancy on the outside; just plain white frosting is a fantastic way to cover the surprise hidden inside.
