Recipes of Baking Cakes With Secret Shapes Hidden Inside

I AM BAKER Cutting the cake has never been so fun! In her new book Surprise-Inside Cakes, Minnesota native Amanda Rettke gives step-by-step instructions on how to create the delectable cakes with the clever use of cookie cutters and food coloring.
The book, which is set to hit stores on April 8, also features colorful, detailed photos of the one-of-a-kind confections up close.
In one photo, a blue cake adorned with cherry-shaped frosting on the outside is sliced down the middle, revealing a larger cherry shape within.
Another cake is decorated with long bunny ears on top, with the animal's eyes and nose visible once the cake is sliced into. 'The cake does not get dry,' she explains. 'It stays "insulated" if you will, and this method lends itself beautifully to more complex designs.' Ms Rettke's book gives instructions for every level of baker, so that even beginners can learn to master a 'surprise-inside' technique.
It also explains how to bake a level cake and create edible masterpieces for every occasion - whether it be a birthday, holiday or other themed events. Another one of her sweet treats is decorated with rainbow sprinkle and plastic balloon shapes on top. Inside, chocolate circles are hidden in the middle of the white cake.
Ms Rettke first gained attention from her food blog I AM BAKER, where she introduced her very first surprise-inside cake in 2010. Her blog currently has more than 11,000 subscribers, and her cakes have been featured on Martha Stewart's show as well as other media.
