Does anyone know the technique of how you make different scenes and shapes inside a cake? Would it be similar to the technique used to make polka dots inside a cake by using pre-baked cake balls? I saw a picture of a cake with flowers inside when you cut it. I was just wondering how it was done. Has anyone tried flowers before?

I want to bake the image of a cherry inside a cupcake. I cut out the cherry shapes out of sponge cake and froze them, then tried to bake them inside the cupcake (I put a couple spoons of batter in the bottom, placed the cherry shapes and the put another spoonful on top). But when the cupcakes baked, the inside pieces just rose to the top.
Is there a way I can stop it doing this and keeping it in the centre?
