Cake Plaza Comes Up with an All New Range of Customizable Pinata Cakes
A little history of Pinata cake first: Pinata cakes are based on this Mexican papier mache centrepieces with a hollow centre that is then used to hold sweets/ gifts/ anything to surprise people coming over. This concept gave birth to this ongoing trend of pinata cakes – also known as smash cakes and surprise inside cakes. Today, they are loved by the millennial for the fact that they are able to inject an element of surprise to occasions, holidays, and special days.
Types of Surprise Inside Cakes
If you are already bewildered at the advancement in the cake industry and this new title takes the amusement to an all new level, let us define it and make it easy for you. There are two types of surprise inside cakes aka pinata cakes available: Soft Bread Surprise Inside Cakes and Hard Shell Surprise Inside Cakes. Let us now go into the details for both the types.
Soft Bread Surprise Inside Cakes
The name says it all. This is a ‘normal’ cake where in the space in the centre is created by cutting the bread. The icing is done on this after the cutting and scraping off the bread (leaving the base untouched) from the centre to make space to hide stuff inside. After this the stuff is added and the top is covered with a piece of bread or a lot of icing. This is cut using a regular cake knife upon which the goodies start popping out.
Hard Shell Surprise Inside Cakes
This is unlike the soft bread surprise inside cake you just read about. The hard shell is used making chocolate in a mould of a shape you desire, like a heart shape hard shell pinata, a diamond shape hard shell pinata, a globe shape hard shell pinata… the list goes on. It is not cut using a knife. The hard shell requires a toy hammer (that comes along with the cake) using which the shell is broken to reach to the insides where the surprise is hidden.
