Leopard pattern inside cake tutorial
Okay I fell in love with the inside of a cake that was floating around facebook. It was a picture of a cake that had leopard print on the inside. I just had to try to make it immediately!. So this is how I did it..Simple simple!
Yellow cake colored light brown: prepared like you are making cakepops with it. Roll into small balls.
Chocolate cake: prepared like you were making cakepops with it then rolled out very thin. Take a cirle cutter and cut circles.
Then take the yellow balls and place them into the circles and wrap the chocalte cake around them. Doesn’t have to be perfect because leopard spots aren’t!
Prepare you cake as normal once your batter is in their pans start placing the leopard spot (balls) into the batter. Letting some of them sink into the batter and also let some sit semi-submerged. Put a ton of them in the batter. The next time I make this I will add a ton more. As you can see from the picture, I didn’t add enough the first time.
Bake and done! You will have a leopard cake on the inside!
Thank you Liz @ Cakery Creation

Thank you so much! I wanted to know how to make this but couldn't find out how without paying a fee to become a member of a cake site. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Oh, one question....how do you make the batter "like cakepops"? I don't make cakepops and the batter in the pictures is stiff, like a dough. How do you do that? Thanks!

bellacakecreations Says... 3 Jul 2012 , 10:43am

Cake pops are just already bake cakes that are broken up (my 5 year old like to say "crumby") and mixed with frosting until you are able to handle them and form balls. Check out bakerella for cake pop tips HTH

You're welcome. Here is a link to a video ML Arte Cakes made based off of my tutorial instructions: youtu.be/x_ZHxdLd4jM .

I made this pattern 2 years ago, but I didn't do it like this, I did it like the frozen buttercream transfer method. I put some cake in 2 icing bags and basically drew the pattern with my cake then poured the cake in layers. I will have to make a tutorial of how I did it. It's very simple & quick.

Hi you said to make like cake pops. Did you mean actual cake which is then put into cake batter? Or is it the candy melts? Thanks. I really want to make this cake.

wndipoo Says... 3 Jul 2012 , 12:04pm

That is awesome, thanks so much. Have go to make this cake soon!!

cakerycreation Says... 3 Jul 2012 , 12:34pm

dee0903 No, I didn't use any cake pop coating just the cake part of the cake pop. :)

Ally1979 Says... 3 Jul 2012 , 12:53pm

Did you add the frosting to the cake to make the spots or just the cake rolled in a ball? When you make cake pops you add frosting.

Awesome!!!! Thank you for sharing!

Great tutorial!! Thanks so much for taking the time to do it!!

Wow! Gorgeous results and I never would have guessed it was so easy!

There seems to be a lot of confusion over the cake pops. As others have said, you make cake pops by crumbling a baked cake and mixing it with frosting, until it's thick enough to be rolled into balls. For this recipe, you don't candy coat the cake balls, as if you are making cake pops. She rolled the brown cake pop pieces in a chocolate cake pop mix that was spread thin. It kind of looks like chocolate candy, so maybe that's why people are confused.

The chocolate layer looked like the Oreo truffle mix I made at Christmas. I wonder if that will work (similar to cake pops, grind up Oreos and mix w/cream cheese, here are some I made - www.itsallaboutthejacksons.com/2011/12/12-days-of-baking-day-3-red-velvet-cake.html). The brown also looked a lot like chocolate chip cookie dough, wonder how that would come out?

How was the flavor and texture of the rebaked cake pop part?

Many thanks - all the best to you

NovaTrixi Says... 4 Jul 2012 , 1:13am

cool :D

saadyah Says... 4 Jul 2012 , 4:33am

Looks great!! Got a question, though - - do the already baked cake balls become over baked or tough/rubbery when you bake them again?

cakerycreation Says... 4 Jul 2012 , 6:09am

Saadyah....No not at all. I had a few people do a little taste test and they all loved it!

TriciaLadybug Says... 4 Jul 2012 , 7:15am

Thanks so much. I want to give this a try!

Hey guys! I uploaded a tutorial yesterday that just went live but my pics are not visible so I uploaded the pic tutorial in my album. The way I do it does NOT use cake pops. Just colored cake batter. Here's the link to it...cakecentral.com/gallery/2360797/leopard-print-inside-cake-tutorial

you're welcome!

Elephantenmaus Says... 4 Jul 2012 , 4:38pm

I used this method yesterday and it works brilliantly... But like you also said more spots next time :) thanks for the tutorial x

Elephantenmaus Says... 5 Jul 2012 , 3:07pm

Have added the pic to my photo's just wanted to say thanks again. The family loved this cake and my German relatives have asked me to translate the how to guide for them ;)

cakerycreation Says... 6 Jul 2012 , 4:53am

Elephantenmaus You,re welcome! Thanks for posting your results. Your cake looks great!

ejssweets Says... 9 Jul 2012 , 9:34am

@ Angelfire3: please provide the link for your tutorial. Looking forward to seeing it! Thank you.

docofthedead Says... 12 Jul 2012 , 3:49pm

this is so great! Thank you so much for sharing it with us! I would say you could always use the same idea to make a zebra striped one too! I noticed the tutorial says you can use Oreos also (thank goodness for subtitles..lol). I may need to invent a reason to bake a cake now! :) Again, thanks for sharing!

kakedecorator Says... 18 Jul 2012 , 7:53pm

To get an idea of how big to make the spots, what side cutter did you use on the chocolate cake? Great tutorial. Thank you for sharing.

kakedecorator Says... 27 Jul 2012 , 7:34am

Sorry, that should have said "what SIZE cutter"

superliciouscakes Says... 30 Jul 2012 , 2:58pm

Thank you so much for the tutorial! I can't wait to make this cake. I do have one question... do you make 3 individual cakes? 1 for tan spots, 1 for chocolate spots, and 1 for the cake itself. I know this is probably a common sense question, but I just want to make sure I do it right. Thanks!

anavillatoro1 Says... 2 Aug 2012 , 10:39am

THANK YOU THANK YOU

margeann Says... 5 Aug 2012 , 8:38am

Gtandma7...please do. Will be waiting for it.

cakerycreation Says... 18 Aug 2012 , 5:36am

Oh sorry I havent been on here in a while.. Kakedecorator I used a 2" round cutter...Superliciouscakes. If you wanted you could cook different cakes for each color but I didn't. I always have left over cake from carving or torting so I just used those extra pieces for this tutorial. Thanks :)

Lainie21 Says... 16 Jun 2015 , 5:35pm

Thank you for the wonderful tutorial. One question, as you stated make the cakes like cake pops, are you mixing frosting in with the cake to make it like a cakepop?
