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.
