Cake

Nothing like sticking with a theme, but superheroes seem to be in at our house. I’ve promised my brother that I’ll have a go at making a Spiderman cake for my nephew Sonny’s 5th birthday in a couple of weeks’ time. Sonny absolutely loves Spiderman and dresses in his little Spiderman outfit whenever he can.

I had a search online and found a few different Spiderman cakes with various designs. I found one I liked, and even though I’ll be seriously stretching my icing skills, if I can pull it off, it will look brilliant! I think I’ve been bolstered by the boot tops – I’ve somehow got the impression that enthusiasm and will can overcome lack of skill or knowledge.

At least this one has a step-by-step on YouTube.  I’ve already bought the icing and the food colouring, just need to get a paintbrush and some toothpicks (seriously).

His birthday’s in a couple of weeks, so I’ll put up a photo of the result, whether it’s worthy or not.
