Pinata Rainbow Ruffle cake - the Ultimate Smash cake - sneak peek

My kids have voted this cake the bestest cake ever.


and lets face it, my kids have had quite a bit of cake, so I'm going to say their vote carries some weight in kids cakey circles.

EDIT UPDATE : DIY instructions for this cake are now on the blog here:

It's a for real pinata cake filled with candy shaped like a pinata pony cake.

Yup filled with candy.

Oh and it's rainbow inside as well.

Anyhoo these are just a couple of quick pictures. I have a real post coming up with a DIY tutorial. Make sure you follow by email (it's kinda up in the top right corner) to get updated when I post :)

It's inspired by those super sweet pinata cookies that I keep on seeing everywhere. I noticed in the picture they had stuck quite a bit of extra candy in to make the photo look better and I was thinking wouldn't it be awesome if it was big enough to fit stacks of candy in, like stacks and stacks of candy.

Then I thought that would really have to be cake sized not cookie sized.....and yup that was pretty much my thought process behind this cake. Need. More. Candy.

Anyhoo like I said instructions to follow and in the meantime follow me on Pintrest or email so you don't miss a single sweet thing from Bubble and Sweet Blog.
