Instead of displaying a person's new age on the outside of the cake, the Rainbow Tie-Dye Surprise Cake does it on the inside. Absolutely revolutionary, it is a rather complex recipe that will nevertheless garner an expression that will be memorable and priceless. Other than a car on one's 16th birthday, it is the ultimate surprise.
Conceived and baked by Beth Jackson Klosterboer of Hungry Happenings, the Rainbow Tie-Dye Surprise Cake may be great for kids, but adults will enjoy it as well. Created to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Tablespoon, it is essentially a cake within a cake. First a multi-colored cake is made and cut into the number five. Then it is surrounded by more batter and covered with tie-dyed fondant.
