Her second birthday cake

If you've been following me for some time, you may remember I made a blog post on a cake I made for my cousin's first birthday, and if you don't, you can see it here. She turned 2 on Monday and we celebrated it last weekend, so I made another birthday cake for her. 
Si me sigues desde hace tiempo, puede que recuerdes un post que publiqué de una tarta que hice para el primer cumpleaños de mi prima, y si no, puedes verla aquí. El lunes cumplió 2 años y lo celebramos el fin de semana pasado, así que le hice otra tarta de cumpleaños

You should know that I hadn't made a real cake since her last birthday and my frosting and decorations skills have never been very good.
Deberíais saber que no había hecho una tarta de verdad desde su último cumpleaños y glasear y decorar nunca han sido habilidades mías.

The photos are not the best, because I took them with my phone on her house, but I still hope you like them.
Las fotos tampoco son las mejores, porque las hice con el móvil en su casa, pero aun así espero qeu os gusten.

This is what the cake looked like before taking it to their house:
Así era la carta antes de llevarla a su casa:




I also filled some water balloons with sprinkles and when we arrived at their house I pinned them to the cake.
Además, llené unos globos de agua con fideos de chocolate y cuando llegamos a su casa los puse en la tarta.



I then made my aunt and cousin explode them, so the confetti fell on the cake and "decorated" it.
Luego le hice  a mi tía y a mi prima explotarlos, así que los fideos cayeron encima de la tarta, "decorándola".


Sorry, I covered my aunt's house because it was pretty weird and I don't think she'd like her face on the internet, specially that face.

And the last surprise was this...
Y la última sorpresa fue...


It had different colors in the inside! 
¡Tenía círculos de colores por dentro!


How did I make it?


I first made some cake pops to make the colorful polka dots. To do them I made a regular cake with a cake mix, scrambled it and mixed it with frosting. I separated the dough into different bowls and added different coloring to each bowl. Lastly, I just made a lot of little balls.

I then used this recipe from Sweetapolita to make the vanilla cake and I put the cake balls inside before baking each cake.

¿Cómo la hice?


Primero hice las bolitas de tarta para los circulos de colores. Para eso, hice un bizcocho normal con un preparado para tartas, la desmigajé y la mezclé con glaseado. Luego separé la mezcla en distintos bols y les eché colorante de distintos colores. Por último, hice un montón de bolitas.

Luego usé esta receta de Sweetapolita para hacer el bizcocho de vainilla, y puse las bolitas dentro antes de hornear cada tarta.
