Piñata Cake

For a dramatic gender reveal, turn your favorite layer cake recipe into an edible piñata. To make, you’ll need 4-5 cake layers. Keep the bottom and top layers intact, then remove the centers of the remaining layers. Stack the cake, putting icing between each layer, then fill the center with pink or blue candies and sprinkles. Add the top layer and decorate as desired.
