Amazing! That tree cake with the ornament inside is incredible too! You are so gifted. Thank you for sharing!


Just beautiful. My daughter would also approve of the colors as well! Merry Christmas!!!


Adorable - what a fun birthday cake!! :)



Amanda, Amanda, Amanda! You stand alone in the field of decorating cakes with surprises inside. Your talent is undeniable and even with this wonderful tutorial I doubt that I would attempt this. You continue to inspire and awe me with your skills. Best wishes for a very Merry Christmas and all the best to you and your *growing* family in 2011.


That is one gorgeous cake, thanks for the tutorial!
Happy Birthday to your daughter.

Aimee @ Simple Bites

Amazing, as always.




Beautiful! You are so talented. Can you please teach me some piping skills?! I love it and can't wait to try this ribbon piping.

CM @ A Little Lilac

Wow, that's simply the most beautiful 2 year old's cake I have ever seen! Amazing.




LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!! Happy Birthday to your little one:-). Have a blessed Christmas!


Thank you for sharing, this is a wonderful cake! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.....


happy b.day to your little girl!
thanks for this great tutorial…AMAZING!!!!
happy & joyous holiday!

Jessica @ How Sweet

You blow me away ALL the time. I could never, ever, ever do this. I would end up throwing the entire thing out of the window out of impatience. You are amazing.


So cute! I love it.


Love it, my friend! Sorely tempted...I have two more cakes this season...Jesus' birthday cake (I've decided to NOT do the star inside...lol) and Genesis' My Little Pony cake. I'll let you know if I attempt the ruffles on either one. I'm thinking Jesus' birthday cake, mostly because the MLP cake will have Pony figures on it. I'll tag ya! :-)


I make baskets filled with cookies and brownies, every year for people at Christmas. Been doing it every year for 16 years. This cake is so beautiful, next year I might do one for everyone, as a change. Bet you by the time I do my 10th cake, I will be an expert! I sae the ruffles on Martha Stewart, and you took it one step further.
I follow you with a passion!

Tiffany @ Conor & Bella

Wow! That looks amazing! Thanks for the step-by-step instructions! I think i might attemt this soon!

I love you for posting this tutorial.

Cookbook Queen

I love this more than the first one!!!!


Will you adopt me so I can have pink and purple cakes for MY birthday? I'll be 31 on Jan 9th, so be thinking about what kind I'm getting.

Thanks :)

You are so dang talented, I can hardly stand it. Are you a robot? Surely you are not human.


yum yum yum yum!!!!!! I am celebrating my son's 13th month day just to make this cake (actually making a disastrous looking thing but i promises to give it my best shot) =)


adorable! I specially love all the girly ruffles!

Robyn | Add a Pinch

Thank you for sharing some of your magic. And you made it look doable!!!

Merry Christmas to your family! Can't wait to see what all you come up with in 2011!


Happiest of Birthdays to you Audrey! You are one lucky little girl to have such a talented momma!


Thank ypu for showing us how to make the ornament! I was trying to figure it out on my own :O) I am going to make this cake for Christmas eve!



bridget {bake at 350}

You ROCK, Amanda!!! Thank you so much for posting the tutorial. I may never be brave enough to put an ornament in a cake, but I have big plans for that ruffle! ;)


Really pretty cake and great tutorial! Happy Holidays!

Jen @ Passion-for-Parties.com

Ever since you posted the bat cake I have been DYING to know how in the world you got a design inside! I am SOOOO excited that you are sharing a tutorial! THANK YOU, brilliant cake woman, and Merry Christmas to you! :)


Thank you for taking the time to make this wonderful tutorial.... You should write a cake decorating book with all your technics and different designs on making a cake pattern inside another cake?
I think it will sell good....
Have a Merry Christmas an a Nice New Year! :-)

Amy's blah, blah, blog

Another Amazing Amanda creation!

I have got to do those ruffles next time I make a cake. I could just eat them up...literally!!

Heather @ Get Healthy With Heather

So pretty! I love that cake! I will definitely give that a whirl next time I need an awesome cake.

Anne Marie

What an awesome idea!!

Mary C.

So cute! I think I am going to have to give the stuffed cake another try. My cross cake didn't turn out last year. This cake gives me hope!


Did you use the swiss meringue buttercream as well? Your cake is just lovely!


yes, this is pretty, and yes, this is festive, but do you know the main reason i love it so? more frosting, less cake. :)


pleased to meet your blog...
COME VISIT ME...OK...thank you very much


Thanks so much for this post! I tried to make a cake, and even though I have a lot of practice a head of me to make it look perfect - it was FUN!



that's really cute!


You are so creative! I love this!


Wow! Just found your site. I can't believe how good your instructions are and how cute this cake is. Can't wait to see what you do for Valentine's Day!!! This looks delicious. Thank you for sharing your talents!
