Angel Food Apple Pie Pudding Cake with Fondant (my Birthday Cake)

Yesterday was my first birthday I had to bake my own cake! Usually my mom does that for me, but she is in Germany, so that wouldn’t work 😉
So I decided I want to go lazy on it and not do too much on my special day and went for a cake box mix. But as always, it just wasn’t good enough for me. I wanted a filling! Lucky me just bought some super yummy apple pie pudding that works just fine for a filling.
I also don’t like my frosting super sweet so I went for a whipped cream vanilla frosting.
Now I only had to turn this cake into a girly cake. Pink sprinkles and a sheet of paper did the job, but I still wasn’t satisfied, so I made (my first ever) fondant (a butter cream one). I was surprised how easy this fondant was to work with. I had absolutely no problems rolling and cutting it out! All the hours I watched cake boss, finally paid back haha.
Well, in the end I had the best birthday cake I’ve ever had and will for sure make all my future birthday cakes myself :)
Please see this recipe only as an idea! This was what I felt like, but you can seriously turn everything here into YOUR best birthday cake! Change the pudding filling to your favorite flavor, use different colors, maybe not a heart shape (circles stars, flowers), maybe not a number, but a name! You see, there are tons of possibilities! Please share your cake with me, if you try this recipe! I would love to see your creation :)
Angel Food Apple Pie Pudding Cake with Fondant (my Birthday Cake)
Recipe type: Dessert
What you need
For the Cake:
  • 1 box Angel Food Cake Mix
  • 4 containers Snack Pack Apple Pie Pudding
  • 1 small box instant vanilla pudding, divided
  • 2 cups heavy cream
For the Fondant:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, plus more for dusting
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • Red food coloring (or different color if not making hearts)
The Numbers:
  • 1 sheet of paper (normal printing paper)
  • Sprinkles of your choice
  • Print a number on the paper and cut out the inside, so that you can lay it on the cake later and fill the number with sprinkles
How you make it
Start with the fondant:
  1. In a medium bowl combine powdered sugar, melted butter, water and food coloring and knead with a fork until smooth
  2. Place in fridge until you need it
The Cake:
  1. Prepare Angel Food Cake according to package instructions in two 8 inch baking pans and let them cool completely
  2. Set 2 tablespoons of the vanilla pudding powder aside and prepare the rest with only one cup of milk (instead of two)
  3. Mix together the super thick vanilla pudding and all 4 containers of the apple pie pudding
  4. Spread on one half of the cake, then top with other half
  5. Cut the sides of the cake, so that they are even
  6. In a cold metal bowl whip heavy cream on medium speed for one minute, add the 2 tablespoons of vanilla pudding powder you've set aside earlier and beat on high until very stiff
  7. Spread all around the cake
  8. Now lay the sheet of paper with your number on the cake, so that the number is in the middle and sprinkle with sprinkles of your choice (I used pink glitter ones)
  9. Take the fondant out of the fridge and knead with your hands, if it is still too sticky to roll out add more powdered sugar (up to ¼ cup)
  10. Now roll it out like cookie dough, cut out desired shape (hearts, stars, circles ...) and gently press them all around the sides of the cake
  11. Place in fridge for at least another hour before serving
