  1. Gretchen – that’s a great idea, it would be perfect in cupcakes too. Do you have a pic of the cupcakes? I’m working on some this weekend for a family party, it would be a great “wow” factor.

  2. My family is gluten-free by necessity. Do you have any suggestions for gluten free flour substitutions or can I simply use a gluten free cake mix?

    1. Kroger has gluten free cake mixes and flour. You can find them both in the organic and regular baking isle.

      1. The tutorial specifically mentions the batter being thicker than regular batter. Will a store bought mix be thick enough? Or should I modify it in some way?

  3. Not long joined pinterest but very glad l have what a wonderful site and l will enjoy getting in a mess with cake making l will certainly have some fun, thanks for sharing it. 😆

  4. Can’t wait to try this with my 5th grade science class when I make our drilling for gold cakes. I think that this technique will make the drilling easier. Students use straws to try and find out what is under ground.

  5. Brilliant work. In an ametuer baker so I would have no idea if the quantities for the recipe. But I love the idea

  6. Will the dots dry out, since you are making them twice? I want to try this, but am a little apprehensive… 😕 Hope it comes out sorta like yours!

  7. I would like to try and make red balls that look like lady birds when you cut them open. so was wondering if i could add some mini chocolate chips or would that flop the recipe???

  8. Hi…found your fab cake and adapted for my friend’s birthday cake…make vanilla cake with choc spots for one layer and reversed or the other! she loved it and the kids were amazed!! 😉

  9. 😳 Help please. I saw the idea on my sister in law’s facebook. But never did any homework on it. I made cake pops in my electric cake pop machine but it never come to a nice round shape. And when I made a cake the balls was pushed up to the top and never got covered by the rest of the cake. What am I doing wrong??

  10. Thankyou so much for sharing. I’ve volunteered to make cakes/cookies for my daughter’s Primary School Prom, and I think I might make a tiered version of this cake…it’s amazing!

  11. Just wondered how many eggs? As dont know how much of other ingredients if dont know that? Lol
    Looking forward to giving it a try

  12. Please can you let me know how many eggs I would need for 20cm cake tin? As I have no idea re quantity and would love to make this for my sons birthday 🙂 thank you
