Who doesn”t love a good surprise? Better yet, who doesn”t love a surprise cake? If you enjoy both, then this colorful cake is pretty much the most perfect surprise ever created!
From the outside, it”s a vibrant, beautiful cake, decorated with every color of the rainbow. However, it”s what happens when you cut into the cake that earns it a spot in the Cake Hall of Fame. Hidden inside is a treasure trove of M&Ms, which all come flowing out as soon as you cut the first slice. It”s like the dessert version of a pinata!

I like to think that If you could physically cut into a rainbow, this is exactly what it would look like on the inside.
Here”s what you”ll need for this out-of-this-world cake.
- Any cake. A normal sponge cake will do just fine.
- For the buttercream, you”ll need a pound of butter and two pounds of icing sugar.
- Chocolate ganache.
- Food coloring.
- A cake stand or a dish.
- A piping bag and tip.
- A round cookie cutter.
- A knife or a cake cutter.
