polka dots on the inside of the cake? - Page 2

post #16 of 48
Here is a thought, freeze some cake batter in the color or flavor you want. Then when frozen scoop balls of batter. Then pour the main cake batter color and place the balls of frozen batter strategically through out. That should do it. Might have to play with baking times and such due to the frozen batter taking a bit longer than the other batter to actually bake. But worth a try...or two. Think I might give this a whirl myself. icon_smile.gif

I would assume so, though I have never made a cheesecake before.

I was thinking along this line, too. Not 100% sure it will work because of the different temps of batter....and when the frozen balls warm up, they might spread flat instead of keeping their ball shape....and they might sink to the bottom of the batter right away....but worth a try.

Other than that, I think what CHoxie suggested is a fool-proof way of getting this effect.

I guess it depends on how large you want the dot to be. I was thinking melon ball sized and placing in center then a circle around the center then if room another circle around. Each layer would have one layer of "dots" but equally across. If you try to do really small dots they may or may not sink. To me polka dots need to be exactly spaced apart not randomly sprinkled through out.

And if you think about it when you do a marble cake the different batters don't spread, they stay exactly where you mixed them and expand together. If the frozen batter takes a little longer to bake the outer batter around it will create a bit of a seal around the "dot" then the dot will bake a little longer. If you do slow and low it could work really well. Piping will give you a "dot" effect but not a polka dot effect of a perfectly round dot.

If you go with the frozen colors being added, is there any reason you can't assemble the batter, then let it sit for a bit until the frozen batter thaws, or at least levels out the temperature a bit more in the rest of the batter?

I wonder though, if the frozen balls came to room temp, wouldn't they flatten or spread out? SOMEONE is gonna have to test this and find out!!! icon_lol.gifthumbs_up.gif

The frozen batter idea sounds so interesting. I'm dying to try it!

I think I may try this soon! Kind of swamped here of late. Wish this topic would have come up on Friday of last week. I had this entire past weekend OFF! No dance, no cakes, no nothing! It was odd but great! But, this weekend we are travelling to do choreography so the weekend is fully booked, as is next weekend with cakes and dance team tryouts, no time to experiment icon_sad.gif.

Did you try it out? and if so, what were your results?
