As promised, I have now completed my nephew’s Spiderman cake! It’s not perfect, but I’ve had a good crack at it.
I baked two cakes on Thursday night, and was really stressing because neither of them had risen properly, and we’ve somehow got these stupid cake tins with bobbly bottoms that ruin the underside of your cake when you try and take them out. Solution: put these two cakes together to form a supercake!
I made buttercream and put this and jam betwixt the two and then followed the video I mentioned before. I’ve had an issue with the black bleeding a little bit, but I think the only thing I could have done to stop that would be to wait for the red to dry completely, but I don’t have time to do that unfortunately (and didn’t know at the time).
Anyway, here’s photos along the way…
