Piñata Cake Ingredients
Ingredients for a Piñata Cake
Since the Mexican Flag is red, white and green I started with some leftover Christmas products. A cake made with your favorite recipe (or a bundt cake made with cake mix), frostings (packaged or made & dyed in bright colors) and M&M’s (or other small candies) are all you need to make this surprise Cinco de Mayo Piñata cake.
Piñata Cake Recipe
Instructions for Piñata Cake
1) Make your favorite cake and pour it into a large bundt pan. Bake and completely cool the cake.
This cake is best served the same day as it was baked. Some moisture from the cake will slowly seep into the M&M’s and begin to deteriorate their famous crunchy shell.
If you choose to use 2 round pans for a layer cake instead of using a bundt pan, then you will need to cut a hole into the inside center of each cake. Do not cut all the way through each layer. Pile ingredients into the hole and frost only around the outside ring and then carefully place the top layer on.
To find out how long M&M’s last, check our M&M page.
