These cake pops are the coolest things I've seen all day ...and it's perfect timing, because today we're talking about cakes that are decorated on the inside!
Sometimes it's a topical theme, like Easter eggs or the solar system; sometimes it's purely visual, usually a color scheme and repeated textures. Today's bakers are taking their cakes an extra step, and it's my new favorite thing: the cake's inside echoes the theme of the cake's outside. Basically, the party doesn't end just because you've cut the cake. Want to see what I mean?
This pink ombre cake is a perfect example. Look how she's matched the outer gradient of frosting to the inner gradient of cake layers. It's a pretty cake, but once cut, it's beautiful.
Here's a Halloween cake that's hilarious, and just the tiniest bit gross, because...guess what color the cake is inside?
Then there's the oh-so-popular rainbow cake. This marbled one is my favorite, but there are also cupcakes, push pop cakes, cakes on a stick, and this ridiculously cute leprechaun trap cake -- an excellent case of the inside enhancing the theme of the outside.
Just in case you thought humdrum solid colors were your only option, I give you...cakes with pictures inside.

So how about it? Will you be working this trend in your own kitchen?
