Polka-Dot-Not Cake

polka dot cake

I don’t love baking as much as my kids wish I did, but I do love making something that looks relatively complicated without much effort. That’s exactly what you get from this polka dot cake from Once Upon a Pedestal – *you* know that you just baked colorful cake pops inside another cake, but your kids think YOU’RE MAGICAL!

Unless you run into the same problems as CraftFail reader Kayla…

I know, you want to tell her to add just a liiiiiittle more cake batter – until you learn this was her THIRD ATTEMPT, at which point you just want to say, “You know what, Kayla? This one is just perfect. Let’s eat!”

    That’s too bad it didn’t work. I did this same recipe/cake for my daughters 2nd b-day and it came out great!

    Just cover it with lots of icing and it will be great. No one will know the difference!
