Smartie Surprise Cake

Both kids are in school this year, and with the cake raffle approaching they couldn't decide on a cake that they wanted me to make. I decided to make two mini cakes instead of one regular cake.  Mr. J wanted a Minecraft  cake but Mr. K was unsure.  We set to pinterest to search for cake raffle cakes and found one that had M&M's in the middle, and then the icing was topped with M&M's as well.

When I set to making the cake, I had lots of smarties so I used them instead.

Directions for smartie surprise cake:

  • bake a 9*13 cake - you could bake in round pans, but I didn't have any the proper size (I used a vanilla base and then separated the batter into 4 bowls and tinted each a different colour.  I then used a spoon to spread the batter throughout the pan, alternating between each colour for a tie dye effect)
  • once cake is baked, allow to cool
  • cut into 2 circles (I used 2 cereal bowls as cutters)
  • freeze for a few hours so cake is easier to work with
  • place one circle of cake on your cake board, hollow out a small portion of the inside (leave a base of cake, and approximately 1 inch around the side as well) place smarties inside
  • spread a thin layer of frosting onto the bottom of your second cake round and place over top of the first
  • frost your cake with your icing choice
  • decorate with remaining smarties


  1. I love how simple and cute this cake is. I might do something like this for my youngest. I bet they would like it.

  2. I totally saw this in my feed earlier and I totally want to make it for my next birthday cake. It's awesome!

  3. This is awesome! I'm looking for great cake ideas for my son's birthday later this month. I'm sure they'd love it.

  4. This looks like so much fun for kids!
