So, I spent last week trying to learn how to make the cake with the polka dots inside.
Baby Boy Cake Pops are the most popular post on this blog (and they're really nothing special), I figured the world was hurting for more BOY baby shower ideas.
What You Need:
6", 8" or 9" round cake pan(s)
2-3 white cake mixes (or Vanilla Cake Recipe doubled)
Food Coloring (I used the McCormick NEON that you find at the grocery store)
1-2" Round Cutters (Biscuit cutter, Fondant cutters or Cookie cutters)
Buttercream Icing (Canned icing would also work here)
For the dots on the outside:
2 Piping bags
Round Tips in varying sizes (I used # 3, 5, 7, 10)

Pour 2 cups of batter (into an 8" pan) or 1 1/4 cups of batter (into a 6" pan).
Pour the batter over and around the cupcake cut-outs.
If you do not cover the polka dots, they will rise with the cake batter, so when you level it, you'll cut half of your dots off.
Remove the cakes onto a cooling grid and allow to cool completely. (The photo above is of a cake cooling on its top-- you see the bottom of the cake.)
level the cake layers once they're cool.

This is what it will look like on the inside!
I used tips #10, 7, 5, & 3 for this cake, but any various sizes of round tips would work.
