These are photos from last weekend, when apparently I had a limitless supply of energy.
Megan over at NotMartha made a crazy adorable leprechaun trap cake with a surprise rainbow inside (you really should see hers), and seeing that I am The Leprechaun, I thought I might want to practice making one so I’m ready for next year. I used a little castle-style bundt pan that I’ve owned for forever and used perhaps four times.
I would recommend following her directions if you want to try it yourself. Either that or hire an elf to bake it. I hear that they really hate leprechauns and would make this cake for free.
Warning: Dividing the batter involves some math. Or, some good estimating.
Bake and wonder that it didn’t go over the sides of that little pan and cause a fire.
Cut cut cut. Eat eat eat.
Well, it wasn’t a perfect rainbow, more like a paisley swirl, but it was still fun to make. I used liquid food coloring and could have gone a little darker with the red and orange, though they look better in real life than in a washed-out flash photo.
This also marks the very first time ever that this cake pan has released a cake without tearing. The secret? Spray half a can of cooking spray inside it. That’s a whole half can – no less.
Good thing I have a whole year to practice, huh?
