Spiderman Themed Cake

Bronze's present to his friend Jayden who likes Spiderman.  Red velvet cake with chocolate buttercream icing.  Used  two 9" X 13" rectangle cake.  Cut both in half, level, and stacked on top of each other creating a 16" tall cake.  Kneaded the cake trimmings and left over frosting.  The resulting cake/frosting mixture are formed into bricks for the building.  For the windows I placed 2 small rectangles on top of each other.  I outlined the windows using black buttercream frosting spiked with pipping gel.  The pipping gel increases the flowability of the buttercream through the tip creating smooth lines.  On the rooftop I drew black buttercream spiderwebs around the  Chibi Spiderman figurine.

Happy 7th birthday Jayden!
How long did this take me to make? It took 2 1/2 days to make.  The first day I baked the cake.  I let the cake sit at room temperature uncovered so it will be easy to handle the next day.  The cake is soft when its freshly bake and will fall apart easily.  The next day I made my spiderman figurine out of gumpaste.  Since its my first time making spiddy it took half a day to make.

Chibby Spiderman.  I tried to make him skinny but the gumpaste is
hard to work with.

After that I made my frosting, fill the cake, apply my crumb coat, and applied the final coat of frosting on the cake.  I refrigerated the cake after each stage to maintain its shape.

This is what I got.  A 16" tall 8" by 6" rectangle.
Since I know how to make the spiderman figurine the next one would be better.  Next project would be retro Bumblebee Transformer (if I am still alive after cleaning my kitchen).

Minion Cupcake Cake

This is how I made my Ube (purple yam) Minion cupcake..  Enjoy! Come see how I made it in this youtube video.  Don't forget to subscribe for more updates! Used Wilton tip 1M to create the rose pattern on the cupcake.  Start pipping from middle cupcake and out. To create the eyes...  You will need 3 different sizes of round cookie cutter (3", 2.5, 1 inches, white fondant, grey fondant (goggle frame), light brown fondant (iris), and black fondant, large ball tool, and piping gel.  Cut out a 3" circle out of grey and white fondant.  Set aside in large ziplock bag.  Cut out a 2.5" circle in the middle of the grey circle.  This will be the frames for the minions goggles. With a small brush apply a small amount of water along the perimeter of the white circle.  Lay down the grey frames on top of the white circle.  Using a ball tool (See pic bellow) make an indent on the bottom centre of the white circle.  Place the brown 1" circle in the di

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.   The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less. Pilipit Ingredients: 2 eggs 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil 2 cups all purpose flour ( add a bit more if the mixture sticks to your hand) 3 tablespoon of milk ( add more if final mixture is dr
