1 night. 2 cakes! - one finished :D

Postby docmaggoo » Thu Dec 27, 2012 4:16 pm

bit of a busy evening ahead of me....

1 night to make 2 birthday cakes!

It's James' 4th birthday tomorrow and I'm making him a spiderman cake for his party on Saturday.
Hoping to also make a small one for him to have tomorrow for his actual birthday.
I'm working a full day today and half day tomorrow - so watch this space as to whether I manage any of it in time!
:loopy:

Red layer - cooked and cooling
Blue layer - cooked and cooling
Black ( well more like silver) layer - in the oven

Those 3 layers are to go together for his actual birthday cake
I plan to cover in red fondant icing and then pipe a black spiderweb on the top.


For his party - I've done a huge square vanilla sponge - which ill cut out in the shape of Spider-Man's head and decorate!

This bit is also in the oven!

A few mins feet up whilst it all cooks/cools :giggle:

I admit defeat :(

It's 9.30pm and I've just finished cake 1.
Have baked cake two but no even started decorating it. And none of his presents are wrapped.
Plus I'm working tomorrow morning.
So decided to buy one for his party

But he has a mummy made one for his actual birthday tomorrow.
Complete with Spider-Man coloured sponge inside!
