I have seen other tutorials on this “Patterns inside a cake” technique but I didn’t know the importance of making the inside image tight if you want each piece to reflect a perfect image. My husband thought up this idea and it works great!
I baked a pink cake and cut a small wedge to cut my piece out of.
This is all the pieces.. see how they are wedge shaped? This allows for a tight image.
Now place the hearts upside down in a small pool of cake mix. I used a nail in the center to get the center to cook while the edges cooked.
Now cover the hearts with batter and bake. This was an 8”x3” pan and I think it took about an hour at 350 degrees….but keep checking.
This was the finished baby reveal cake… it was a girl!
