I made this Indiana Jones Pyramid Cake for my son’s 7th birthday party. We had an archaeological treasure hunt in the park!
To make the cake I baked two square cakes and stacked them on top of one another. I then carved the cakes to form the pyramid (using the discarded pieces for the peak). A small cut out was made to store the treasure (gold coins).
I covered the cake in butter icing tinted a sandy brown colour (mixing red, blue and yellow food colouring together) and sprinkled with some small yellow (sand looking) sprinkles. To finish the cake I placed some Egyptian amulets on and around the cake.
