If you have ever baked using a character mould like I did for this cake, you know it is quite simple. Simple because all the details of the character will be on the cake and you just have to ice it accordingly.
It can go wrong as well! It is any baker's nightmare if the details are not retained after the cake is baked. And that's exactly what happened to me.
When I removed the cake from the pan, a very thin layer of cake was stuck to the pan. The part that was stuck was Spidey's face and hands. Basically, the main part of the character. Arrrgghhh!!!
Due to this, I had a hard time trying to figure out the bumps and the lines on the cake. Luckily, I had the picture of Spidey in colour.
It took me awhile to ice the cake, much much longer than it should have been, but eventually I got there.
The birthday boy's parents were happy with the cake. And I was delighted! Only if they knew what I had been through!
BTW, this cake was for a three-year-old Spiderman fan.
