Circus tent Birthday cake DIY


This cake looks complicated but it is not. The shape is simply from a big cupcake mold. Yes, you thought i ran out of ideas with it! Perfect shape for a circus tent!

You will need:
2 boxes of white cake mix,
1 can of strawberry Duncan Hines pie filling & topping


Make sure you oil and flour your mold.


I used 2 cake batters, one with the strawberry filling and one without.




Pour the blend one and then the strawberry one. Swirl it with a spoon or leave it like that.
Follow the temperature instructions on the cake mix box.

When cooked place in freezer, it will come out of the pan and will be easier to take out of the mold.


You have to cut the extra cake parts to make them fit together.


Then turn for the icing...


Cute circus tent cake!!

Cute! Je n'ai pas encore chercher de livres mais ni mon fils, ni moi ne mangeons de beurre et du coup ça pose problème pour le glaçage. Il faut absolument que je trouve une dairy free recipe.
