To make things a little easier come Foster's birthday party, I'm making his birthday smash cake and cupcakes in advance. Freeze them... *party time arrives*.... thaw them, decorate them, eat them! But how could I not give a sneak peek into what I'm doing. So here it is. But you'll have to wait for party pictures to see how it all comes together. Read on!
Omnomicon and completely fell for it. I loved the idea of it so much, I decided to use it as Foster's birthday cake.
I used just the method shown on the site to make my own cake, not the alterations to the cake recipe. I also made the colours quite a bit bolder for mine. I can barely wait to cut into it to see how it looks! But alas, I have to wait for the big day. And so do you!
Pour the first colour into the center of the pan.
Pour the second colour over it into the center of the pan.
Pour the third colour over the others, into the center of the pan... and so forth until all colours are added.
As you pour them they spread out and the next colour you pour in, pushes the cake batter out further to fill the pan. For the other layer, pour the cake batter colours in the reverse order. That way, when you stack the cake layers, there will be more variation of colour throughout the cake. Don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect! (The pic of the other layer is way to blurry to even bother posting it. I was really tired when I was baking it!)
PS, I was good. I didn't have a single cupcake. They ALL made it to the freezer safe and sound!
