Hi All

As anyone who's seen my cakes for friends and family before knows (see latest cheese cake and cake platter fooler in my gallery) I like a surprise cake one way or the other.

I'm making a graduation cake where inside will be Syracuse orange and I'm going to put white S letter inside.  Even though I plan a little test, can anyone tell me if the orange from the surrounding cake will bleed into the White S's?  Would it be better to do it in reverse - orange S and white rest of the cake?

Should I have titled this thread Watch Your S?  Prob not!

Any advice or suggestions appreciated!

I did a surprise cake.  I had dark colors and they did not bleed into the yellow cake

If you are putting baked cake into the pan and then pouring batter over it there is no bleeding.

Thank you ropalma and pastrybaglady!  I am definitely going with the already baked letters so I am happy to read and hear your results! Nice jobs and the panda is adorable!

Ha ha, thanks K8 and MB. Surprise inside cakes are really fun. They can look so plain and unassuming on the outside. So far I've only made them in loaf pans and done minimal decoration so the inside would be highlighted.
