I've been experimenting with surprises inside my cakes. This seems a little simpler. Perhaps, it was because of your 5" cake round. By the way, how deep is that pan? I've not seen one like that.


Very cute and you make it look easy to do. I would love to try this but the pan size you use is a bit unusual. I haven't been able to find it. Any suggestions?
