Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: The cake is 4 layers 8"round, coloured neon pink yellow green and blue. Stacked and filled with jam. I cut the 4layers in half, and separated, with w a white chocolate "bridge" in between, filled with candies - the pinata outside is coloured buttercream, to look like the tissue paper with basketweave tip. The head was formed from Krispy cereal treat...had legs but they collapsed under the weight of the cake so he ended up lying down on the tray. The birthday girl (11Y) smashed the pinata with a hammer to the delight of everyone.

What a great pinata and sure would love a photo of the young lass smashing it with the hammer. Best birthday cake ever with all that treasure inside.
