It is AMAZING what you can hide inside a cake! How long did the egg take you? Again I say, Amazing!! And the frosting tip is neat too :)


I love it!! the Easter egg is so cool!! :)


I love your surprises inside your cakes. I don't have the patience to do that!
Some places have things that have designs to do cake sides. I used to have a large triangle one that had a different cut on each side.


Beautiful and amazing as usual, Amanda! The egg in the cake is perfect!

Amanda!! This is insane. In a good way. You amaze me!!

Mrs. Puma

That's so awesome, I never thought of doing this! It's kind of dumb and random, but I've never really thought of icing an actual cake with whipped cream. I love the Easter egg, it's really pretty!


Great tutorial! I can't wait to try it. I don't think you were over zealous with the egg design at all!


You must be able to read my mind! I was just at the grocery store searching for this recipe to make for Easter! I'm pretty sure mine won't be as beautiful but it will be yummy! Thanks and happy Easter to you and your family!

Shannon Marie

Amazing! I may try something like this for Mother's Day!

Oh my gosh. There is no way you overdid it. The egg looks awesome! You have to share how you did that!

Absolutely wonderful!! The easter egg is just perfect ~ and I have no idea how you thought of it. Thanks so much for sharing.
How's the little one doing?



This is so cool! I am offically addicted to your blog. Everything you make is absolutely beautiful and I love all of your ideas!

I am in the process of planning my best friend's bachelorette party for this summer, and I plan on attempting a couple of your cakes. Possibly the GORGEOUS hydrangea cake and maybe a vertical layer cake with a chocolate monogram standing up on top.

Thank you for being so amazing. :)
