7. Peekaboo Heart Poundcake
If you like the idea of the heart cake, but want something a little less formal, a poundcake is just as impressive! The technique behind it is completely different, using a heart-shaped cookie cutter to get your surprise heart design.
8. Heart Surprise Cupcakes
Even easier: mini hearts in cupcakes! These would be more practical for school parties, potlucks, bake sales or, to give away as Valentine’s gifts.
Hugs and Kisses are another great surprise-inside idea for Valentine’s Day:
9. Earth Day Cupcakes
Here’s a completely different concept for the surprise-inside heart; use red frosting instead of twice baked heart shaped mini cakes. How sweet!
10. Candy Stuffed Cake
How cool is this?! Although intended as a gender reveal cake (blue candy for a boy and pink for a girl), I think this would be fun to make and eat for just about any type of party! It’s quite impressive but rather easy to make. Your two center pieces of round cake will have a hole in the middle to be stuffed with the candy of your choice before topping with your final sheet of cake.
11. Piñata Cake
What’s better than a piñata, you ask? An edible piñata! Just imagine the shock of your party guests once the cake is cut open. I love the unique round shape of this one, too. It’s almost as cool on the outside as it is on the inside!
12. Surprise Candy Rainbow Cake
A surprise, indeed! Just when you think you’ve seen the coolest rainbow cake ever, it’s cut open to reveal the surprise waiting inside. If it were me, I’d stuff it with those little gold chocolate coins! It would be like the pot of gold IN the rainbow instead of at the end of the rainbow. Wink.
