More About This Recipe
Find a bit o' extra luck inside this leprechaun hat reveal cake for St. Patrick's Day. Secret shamrocks are a special surprise inside this adorable cake.
Leprechauns were mythical men written about in Irish folklore who were so rich, they had to hide their treasure. So if you could find what they had hidden, you would be rich! Of course, you'd have to find the end of the rainbow, and I'm pretty sure you would need faerie powers to do that.
I don't know about you, but I don't have magical powers. So instead of chasing Leprechauns all over the countryside in search of the elusive pot of gold, I decided to make a fun surprise cake instead. It's perfect for St. Patrick's Day. The cake looks like a Leprechaun hat on the outside, and has green shamrocks hidden on the inside. When you slice into the cake, each piece reveals more shamrocks!
You'll need a small 1-inch shamrock cookie cutter and two extra deep 8-inch round pans to make this cake, along with two Betty Crocker White Cake mixes and frosting. I chose to cover my cake with green fondant to give the Leprechaun hat a shiny and smooth finish.
When the cake is whole, no one will know of the surprise hiding inside! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
