How to Make a Piñata Cake

How to Make a Piñata Cake

Sharing is caring!

Growing up, one of my favorite things to collect were trolls! I was so excited when the movie came out a couple of years ago and my kids loved it too! While it seemed like just another cartoon movie, it really offered such an amazing messaging of happiness, hope, inclusion and love! Now, we love to watch the DreamWorksTV’s animated series “Trolls: The Beat Goes On” on Netflix!

How to Make a Tampico Trolls Piñata Cake

While usually cakes are reserved for special occasions like birthday celebrations, sometimes it is super fun to just surprise the kids with a cake for “just because”! This Surprise Trolls Piñata Cake was a hit for my family. And what goes better with a piece of cake than some refreshing bottle of Tampico to wash it down with?

We love watching “Trolls: The Beat Goes On” as a family, so we are super excited that Tampico partnered with the series!  In addition to the Troll wrapped six-packs in stores like the ones we used for our surprise, Tampico has an interactive Flavor Hunt on Instagram!

Participants can enter the sweepstakes by finding the Tampico six-packs scattered throughout Troll Village, for a chance to win a $100 Netflix gift card. If you want to participate simply click the link below to begin!
