I still have nightmares about the Spiderman cake that fell to pieces as I tried to stack a Spidey cutout on top of a sheet cake. I don’t use thick, dense pound cake. I use fluffy, moist, crumby cake that tastes delicious. And those kinds of cakes do not make good candidates for cut-outs.
I was a little apprehensive agreeing to make a cake shaped like a number “2”, but after some thought, I figured out a way to make this work. Adjusting some of my techniques, it was successful!
This is a butter cake with a strawberry filling, covered in vanilla frosting tinted in lavender. Princess Olivia was VERY happy! (So was I!)
