***as you can see, my frosting abilities are limited, but i say, "its what's on the inside that counts=]"

Ingredients:

food coloring of your choice
frosting of your choice
small cookie cutter
cake pan
cupcake pan

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Bake #1(mini Cupcake)

first make one box of the cake mix and add a color.
You can add any color or even make it a chocolate cake inside with vanilla cake on the outside.
after your cake has been baked and cooled for up to 20 minutes get your cookie cutter and cut out the shapes.
if the cake isn't holding too well, cool it in the fridge for another 5 - 10 minutes.
then continue cutting out your shapes.

Step 2: Bake #2 (big Cupcake)

while the first batch is baking prepare your 2nd cake mix
once you have cooled and cut out the shapes, place one in each hole of the cupcake pan(make sure they are all facing in the same direction and keep track of that)
then cover that with the cake batter you have(i find it easiest to drop a bit on each side of the mini cupcake to stable it before i put a big dallop of batter on top)
bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean
however be careful when inserting tooth pick because you can interfere with the interior shape.


Step 3: Toppings

remember to keep all the cupcakes facing in one direction since that is the way that the cupcake should be cut/eaten so that the shape will show. 

you can keep track of that by putting certain markers on top of your cupcake.(i chose sprinkles )

for example you can insert cupcake picks and keep it in the correct direction.

you are basically done, Hope you have fun!

- after trying this recipe i found out  that i could have just baked one box since i seems to have lots of leftovers, however you can always just make a small cake on the side or even make cake balls which i will post later.
- you can also substitute the inside cupcake or shape with brownies or even cookies, which will be a lot easier to cut out.
-get creative and insert hearts for valentine's day and even a mini Christmas tree for the holidays.

    inception is defined as giving an idea to any individual through dream-time whilst making it seem self generated how does this relate?

    uhhh.... no it isn't. it's simply the beginning (starting, commencement....) of something. Don't use movies to teach you what words mean, or you'll come out looking really silly when you try to correct people with a completely incorrect definition :)

    idk, cause i don't think the pictures are two different flavors. but i guess it's supposed to be cake inside a cake.

    i'm simply relating to the movie and the whole concept of a dream within a dream. when i think of inception i think " A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM" that's why it's a cupcake within a cupcake. oh well i thought it was pretty awesome =]

    Jax my friend I agree there is no such thing, and with all of these ideas you must be in heaven. I like the idea of two flavors. I love the visualization of this.

    Cool to the core, this is very clever.
    Ps my frosting always looks ugly unless I pipe it on :)
