Burnaway Cakes are made with a top layer that includes a printed image; this also is the most important part of the cake if you ever decide to make one for a friend or family member!

The printed image is then smoothly burned off with a lighter to reveal the new design underneath it, completely transforming the cake into a brand new one!
