Homemade Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cake

I made this Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cake for my dad who LOVES Reese's peanut butter cups.
First, I baked a regular 9x13" cake and another round 6" cake. I frosted both of them and set them aside. Using different colored fondant, I next rolled out some orange (the color of the Reese's package) and the logo.

For the logo, I had to first print one from the computer and then I laid it down on top of the yellow fondant I had rolled out. I cut through it so that it looked as close as possible to perfect. After I did this, I laid the yellow Reese's logo on top of brown fondant and cut around it, making it look just like on the package.

I was able to lift the whole thing and lay it on top of the orange fondant covered cake. Then, I cut the logo underneath the Reese's logo out of the brown fondant and laid a smaller yellow version of the same thing on top of that.
I used food writers to write the words "milk chocolate" and "2 peanut butter cups on top of and underneath the logos.

I then covered the small 6" cake (the PB cup) with brown and black fondant to make it look like a PB cup. I made a "tray" out of white poster board (the only non-edible part), PB cups are always on a tray inside of the package.

Finally, I made it look like it was coming out of the package, like the package had been ripped.

This cake is amazing! Very creative and good job with the fondant. I love how you created it to look like it is coming out of the package.

I am getting ready to do a peanut butter cup cake for my husband and I was wondering how you did the "ripples" in the paper on the cup? That's the one thing that I haven't figured out how to do yet. :)

I love this cake! I too am wondering how you made the black ripples around the peanut butter cup. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

This Homemade Lollipop Cake was a winner for my daughter's 7th Birthday and so easy! First of all make a double sized round cake so obviously you need to have a tall sided round cake tin. I used two butter cake packet mixes and blended them together to make double the mixture and then separated them to make 3 coloured batters by adding food colourings. I used green, blue and pink but you could use whatever you wanted to!

Next add blobs of the 3 coloured cake batters til they are all used up and ready to cook as one cake! Then choose icing colour of your choice. I used a bright pink butter icing and then used red licorice to make the swirls from the middle out. I found a pretty pink ribbon to line around the outside of the cake and then folded a piece of white paper into a cylinder for the lollipop handle and pushed through one end of the cake. I added some curling ribbon and found candy lettering to write happy birthday on the handle.

I then wrapped a long cutting board in white paper and stuck kissing mouth stickers all over it and then placed the cake on it. These are all optional of course but adds to the overall effect of the cake.

Then when the time comes watch all those surprised faces when you cut into the cake and it's the colour of rainbows! This was the coolest bit.
