Here at Sprinkles & Co. we love sharing cake decorating tips with you. And this one has got us excited! If you haven’t seen it yet on social media, sprinkle medleys are gaining huge popularity and we’re not surprised as you get such stunning results! By experimenting with a few sugar shapes, pearls and strands mixed altogether, you can easily make something that brings instant WOW to your bakes! We decided to make something special to share with you – Sprinkle Surprise Cake!
Sprinkle Surprise Cake
First off we had to decide what sprinkles we wanted to use. It had to be bright, colourful and eye-catching! We went for the following:
- Cake Décor Pink & White Shimmer Unicorns
- Cake Décor Pink, Blue, Green & Yellow Chocolate Candied Nibs
- Cake Décor Gold Sugar Pearls
- Cake Décor Strawberry Flavoured Glimmer Crunch
- Cake Décor Multi-Coloured Hundreds & Thousands
- Cake Décor Bright Coloured Strands
After deliberating the sprinkle mix we got cracking with the cake! You’ll need a recipe for a 4 layer sponge cake to build your surprise cake. A hole needs to be cut out from the centre of 3 of the layers being used. Stack the 3 layers on top of each other, using whatever filling you fancy in between. We went for a simple strawberry jam!
Grab your sprinkle mix and fill the cake hole to the brim. Top it off with the last layer of jam and sponge to hide the surprise! We used white frosting to cover the cake, and to make sure the sprinkles really stood out!
And as a finishing touch, we used our Cake Décor Super-Strength Colour Gels to mix in with left-over frosting we had to add an extra pretty piped decoration on top of our cake.
As soon as you slice into the cake, the sprinkles will flow out and make for an exciting surprise! Truly a stunning centre piece for children’s birthdays and parties.
