I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, so apologies if not.
I want to make a 'surprise inside cake' for my grandson, but I will have to make the cake a couple of weeks ahead and freeze it. I've done this before with decorated cakes and not had any problems with icing etc, but this time I want to include some chocolate coins in the centre of the cake. They are the kind that is wrapped in foil.
My question is this - will the chocolate coins be OK once the cake has been defrosted (very slowly) and is ready to eat?
Honestly, I'd be more concerned about the small chocking hazards inside the cake.
The chocolate will be fine.
Squirrelly cakes - thank you for that. I'll give it a go.
Brookebakescake - these coins are the type you get at Christmas - over an inch wide and wrapped in foil. They'll all be together in a 'secret' hole in the centre of the cake, so they'll be handed out individually once the cake is cut.
Thank you both for your replies.
My Gran used to make a similar cake when I was little. She would wrap up little trinkets and actual coins in foil and bake it inside the cake. It was such a treat find the "treasure"!
That is what they did when I was a child SandraDee73. Kids love surprises.
