Prize cake?

When I was little my great aunt (not available to ask) would make a "prize cake." This was a large butter & fudge cake with rings & toys inside. Does anyone know of the actual recipe? It was popular in the 20's or so.

    If you can't find the one you're looking for, try this INCREDIBLY delicious cake; it's called a treasure cake and you can put the treasures when you have poured half the batter in. Roll the treasures in flour first to keep them from sinking. That's an important tip. Good luck:

    Toffee Treasure Cake

    1/4 cup sugar

    1 tsp. cinnamon

    2 cups regular flour

    1 cup sugar

    1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

    1/2 tsp. baking soda

    1/4 tsp. salt

    1 tsp. vanilla

    1 cup dairy sour cream

    1/2 cup butter, softened

    2 eggs

    1/2 cup chopped walnuts

    4 7/8-ounce English toffee candy bars

    1/4 cup melted butter

    Generously grease and flour a 10-inch bundt cake pan. Combine 1/4 cup sugar with cinnamon and set aside. Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla, sour cream, 1/2 cup softened butter and eggs. Blend at low speed of mixer until moist, then beat 3 minutes on high speed. Spoon half the batter in pan, sprinkle with 2 tbsp. of the cinnamon-sugar mix. Top with nuts and coarsely crushed candy. Spoon remaining batter over the filling. Pour 1/4 cup melted butter over cake. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. Cool upright in pan on rack for 15 minutes before removing.
