It was just a few years ago on a bright sunny morning, you held the hand of your six -year old as a big yellow school bus pulled up in front of your mailbox. It was time to board the bus for their first day of school. Your little darling could hardly reach the first step on the bus but with a gentle nudge from you, the climb to board was easy. As you held back the tears, the excitement and joy in your child’s eyes melted your heart, and a new page in this chapter of life had just been turned. As the pages of time turned year after year it is now 2015 and graduation day is on the horizon. Everything you need for a simple reception is right here!
Spot cake recipe features orange, lime and hot pink cake balls baked in the middle of a white loaf cake. The cake is decorated with butter cream fondant and decorated with orange, lime and hot pink Gerber Daisies. This cake is so much fun to create! You will have a great time making the cake balls, which are made from pound cake slices and tinted frosting. The cake balls are refrigerated until firm, then added to raw cake batter and baked. When the cake is sliced the cake has Spot-On Dots inside. My cake was inspired by Amanda Rettke’s Book. I changed a few things to make it my own, but please check out her book. It is fabulous and Spot-On when it comes to creating interesting cakes with a surprise in the middle.
The real queen of baking surprise- inside cakes is Amanda Rettke. Her book Surprise-Inside Cakes: Amazing Cakes for Every Occasion with a Little Something Extra Inside can be linked here.
