Hey guys!! I recently posted asking about a pinata cake I was making (just in case you haven't heard of it, it is simply a cake where you cut out the center and fill it with a candy, commonly M&Ms, so they spill out when you cut a slice.) I was wondering if there was anything I could put in it besides candy. I'm thinking something sturdier that wouldn't spill out, like a thick cream or mousse or caramel? What are your thoughts on this? I'm open to all suggestions and ideas!

Well, if it doesn't have to be refrigerated.... Icecream! :D

I have this pan: it's a mini version of what you're talking about. Could check out Wilton for filling ideas.

But on your pinata post, you said you cut out the uncooked parts, I would just rebake rather than risk someone getting sick cause you missed a spot. If you rebake, you could make each layer a different color/flavor, stack, then cut out the middle and turn the middle upside down so when you cut into it the middle colors are reversed. I saw a video about that and can't find it (I think it was a cupcakes and cardio youtube video).

I meant if it DOES have to be refrigerated you could use icecream.... no edit button....

Ditto on the ice cream, and fully baking the cake.

Hmmm.. Jello would probably have to set up first and then be put into the cake right? because jello is a liquid until chilled, and that would seep into the cake right? Tell me if I'm wrong. I think young kids might like that though!

U.S., in not familiar with how those cakes are made but I thought jello would look cool when cut...but yes, it would have to be chilled first
