The best piñata cakes!

Every once in a while we get to see a post really inspire others to celebrate well. The original piñata cake recipe is one of these kinds of posts. After so many comments and hundreds of thousands of pins, the emails started coming in from everyone who made their own piñata cakes. And loved them! People began altering our recipe to create their own versions of awesomeness. It’s been pure blogger bliss to see something I loved so much be loved by so many others.

I thought I’d share with you my most favorite variations I’ve seen over the past year. Your creative minds blow me away! Here are the best piñata cakes; which ones inspire you?

    These are amazing! I have never had a pinata cake, but have certainly loved them from afar. I love the smash pinata cake. It looks just like the real thing. Incredible.

      Heidi, I know! The skills to make an actual donkey – that is pretty rad.
