Last year it was a Batman cake. This year it is Spidey. How time flies. C & SL's son celebrated his 6th birthday yesterday. It is still so clear in my mind when I could actually pick him and his brother up with both hands and run around the park. He is now up to my chest!
I have been out of practice for a while now. But I somehow still got 'it'. The ganache layers were smooth and the fondant covering was smooth with equal thickness throughout. The flourless orange and almond cake was moist and not too sweet so that it could be eaten with the fondant (usually people just remove the fondant because it is too sweet to eat). And no oil/butter in the cake recipe as well. Not to mention I boiled 3 large oranges and pureed them to add into the cake batter. Yes, I am trying to make healthier cakes :) And most importantly, I got 6 kisses from JR for the cake!! (soon enough there will be no more kisses for Aunty Lay...so better take advantage now hey! hahaha).
There you have it. A simple Spiderman cake. I took a shortcut with the figurine because I had a sore back. But looks alright yeah? :) Could be better (the perfectionist in me talking!). Maybe next year..hope it doesnt get harder year on year.
