Picture of Exploding Cake Prank

PLEASE NOTE: When I came to view the pictures for this instructable, they were all corrupt, I cant view them with anything; paint, WMV, photoshop, nor could I upload them to any sites like here or photobucket. So I am really sorry and for it to be eligible for the contest it had to have 5 steps. So I resorted to drawing them. Sorry :(

Also, before you accuse me of anything, the main picture I have here was taken with a different camera, and after I had taken all the pictures for this instructable.

Hey guys! Im bringing you another prank this time, the exploding cake prank!

Basically, there is a nice hidden surprise (a balloon) hidden inside the cake, underneath all of that delicious pink frosting and chocolate sprinkles... how can anyone resist?

In this instructable, I wanted to make my own cake, becuase just buying a cake from the store and putting a balloon inside is no fun, I like to get my hands messy. And the best part about this prank, is that you can eat it afterwards!

Follow the instructions:

Once it has finished baking, follow these steps:

  2. Blow up a balloon about the size of your fist and tie it
  3. Cut a hole in the middle of the cake big enough for the balloon to fit in

Now that your cake insides are prepared, its time to add the frosting.
  1. Grab your frosting and a pallet knife thingy
  2. Spread the frosting all over the cake's sides and top, as over the balloon too.
  3. Vary thickness of the frosting so the top of the cake looks smooth
Next step!

Which of those cakes did you make? Yeah, problem with the pictures says you should do it again, and video the explosion.

I made the one in the first picture.
It looks tasty, & the balloon is well concealed.

Because the cake turned out not as tall as I wanted it, I could only blow the balloon up to around 2" in diameter :(

But it still gave a nice surprising pop :D
A good way to get "tall" is to just make another cake and put it on top.
