Surprise inside! Specialty pan makes it easy to create a piñata cake

Pinata Cake Pan

Here’s a baking tool that begs the unusual question: Do you need a blindfold and a whacking stick in order to eat it?

This big round hollow orb is the new Piñata Cake Pan by Nordic Ware. It has a special insert to allow you to create a hollow-centered cake, which you can stuff full of candy or nuts or whatever floats your boat, like its papier-maché counterpart.

One cool use for this cake, as suggested by the Betty Crocker site, is for future parents to reveal the gender of their soon-to-be-born baby at the baby shower. Simply fill it with either blue M&M’s or pink ones (or both, I suppose, if fraternal twins are on the way!) and when the guests cut into the cake, surprise!

If you’ve got an upcoming fiesta or just want to impress your loved ones, you can buy one at Amazon.
