How to make a Surprise Cake

Make a Surprise Cake in 3 Easy Steps!

We like to say a Surprise Cake is for "anyone who celebrates anything!" And the best part? It's so easy to do... in fact, it's a piece of cake!

With the Popping Stand, you can easily transform your cake into a Surprise Cake. This tutorial walks you through how to make a Surprise Cake in three quick, clean, and simple steps. 

What you'll need:

  • Popping Cake Stand
  • Store-bought or homemade cake
  • Hidden gift
  • Spatula 
  • Frosting and/or sprinkles 

Step 1: Load gift

Surprise them with money, gifts cards, a new phone, car keys, jewelry, tickets, toys, a gender reveal, or even POP the question! The Pop-abilities are endless!  The size of the Gift Pod is 2.75”D  x 6”H.

Step 2: Core out center

Every Popping Cake Stand comes with a Cake Corer to easily remove the center of your cake. Once removed, you can use the center of your cake as a mini cake! Make sure the cake is at room temperature.

 Step 3: Place cake on stand and hide top


Level the top of the cake with the top of the stand and tighten the thumb screws to secure it on. Lightly conceal the top using frosting, sprinkles, or both! We recommend using a standard 8”-10” round cake no taller than 6”.

And voila! You did it! That's it! 
In just a few minutes, your cake becomes the highlight of the whole party! 
Everyone will LOVE it.
