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!
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
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.
Thank you very much for sharing this, much appreciate. You are very kind and generous, bless you.x
Thank you so much! Really appreciate your hard work and your beautiful results!!!!
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.
That is awesome, thanks so much. Have go to make this cake soon!!
dee0903 No, I didn't use any cake pop coating just the cake part of the cake pop. :)
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!
thanks so much for sharing :) will give this a try for mom's birthday :)
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 - http://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
Looks great!! Got a question, though - - do the already baked cake balls become over baked or tough/rubbery when you bake them again?
Saadyah....No not at all. I had a few people do a little taste test and they all loved it!
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...http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2360797/leopard-print-inside-cake-tutorial
I used this method yesterday and it works brilliantly... But like you also said more spots next time :) thanks for the tutorial x
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 ;)
Elephantenmaus You,re welcome! Thanks for posting your results. Your cake looks great!
@ Angelfire3: please provide the link for your tutorial. Looking forward to seeing it! Thank you.
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!
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.
Sorry, that should have said "what SIZE cutter"
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!
THANK YOU THANK YOU
Gtandma7...please do. Will be waiting for it.
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 :)
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?
