How to Make a Surprise Cake

how to make a surprise cake
This cake merely looks complicated but trust me, it’s simple to make it look this good. The only cake making skill I posess is the ability to watch endless hours of Ace of Cakes.

I think it would be fun to crack open this cake at the stroke of midnight on New Years Eve. It could be filled with treats, noise makers and confetti. You could even make individual mini cakes for your guests and all crack them at once with a explosion of confetti. Get the full tutorial below.

Materials:
- metal bowl
- white chocolate (I used candy melts)
- decorative frosting (for the glue)
- paper circles or other decorations like jimmies
- a surprise for the middle

how to make a surprise cake
Directions:
1. Melt chocolate slowly over a double boiler making sure no water touches it so it stays smooth.
2. Pour into a well oiled bowl (this is a crucial). Using a spoon, move the chocolate to cover the entire surface of the bowl including the sides. A lot of the chocolate on the sides will initially drip to the bottom and that’s okay.
3. Put in freezer for 10 minutes or until hardened.
4. Take out and patch up any holes or thin areas with more melted chocolate. Place in freezer again until completely hardened.
5. When ready to decorate, flip bowl gently and carefully pull the chocolate away from the bowl. If it gets stuck, take a warm washcloth and rub it on the outside of the bowl to loosen the chocolate.
6. Decorate with toppings of your choice, gluing with frosting then put back in freezer until ready to use. Place surprises on a cake stand and cover with chocolate dome.
7. Crack open with a wooden spoon or toy mallet. Surprise!
