Here is the recipe to make the cake base for your Spiderman Cake. We use a vanilla sponge as the cake base because it is quite easy to make yet delicious.
- 4 Eggs
- 350 gram Granulated Sugar
- 237 ml Whole Milk
- 8 tbsp Unsalted Butter
- 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
- 125 gram All Purpose Flour
- 120 gram Cake Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- ½ tsp Salt
- ½ cup whole milk
- 4 lbs powdered sugar (sifted)
- 1 tsp butter flavouring
- 3 tbsp plain gelatine
- 3 tbsp salted butter
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 2½ tbsp glycerin
- 1 tsp butter flavouring
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp salt
- Food coloring (red, black, and yellow)
- Vegetable shortening
Put the eggs into a kitchen aid mixer bowl, then mix it with the granulated sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Do this step over a double, because a warm mixture of sugar and egg will make the best cake result. Keep stirring the egg, until it warm enough for about 46 °C.
Whip the egg mixture on the high-speed whip until the color is thick and pale and 5 times fuller than original volume, it takes about 5 minutes of the process.
Mix the milk and the butter then put it in the microwave until the butter is melted. Then add the vanilla extract to the milk mixture.
Put the mixture of flour into the egg mixture, and whisk it.
Take out the cake batter for about 2 cups into another bowl. Then add the hot milk and butter mixture to the separated cake batter, and whisk it well. Add it back to the main cake batter and whisk them.
Divide the batter into two pans.
Bake it for about 35 minutes in the preheated 176 °C oven.
Cut the sides of the round cake until it resembles the shape of Spiderman head.
Cover with icing.
Put your milk into a cup, and add the gelatine into it. Stir them, and leave it for about 4 minutes until it looks nicely corporate and look firm up and blooming.
Put the mixture into the microwave in the high heat setting for one minute or until the gelatine becomes liquid. Stir it.
In a new cup, add corn syrup, butter, glycerine, butter flavouring and vanilla extract. Put this mixture into the gelatine and milk mixture. Stir it slowly and heat it until the butter melted. Stir again, and let the mixture luke warm.
Strain the mixture into the mixing bowl containing of 2 pounds sifted powder sugar. Mix it using a spatula.
Add the rest of the powder sugar, and stir it slowly using the mixer with the dough hook. You can add the food coloring for each color in this process.
When the dough starts to pull away from the bowl, it means that your fondant is ready.
Pour vegetable shortening and the corn starch on a clean surface to prevent sticking the fondant onto the platform.
Put the dough on the clear surface, make it into a ball shape by your hand (put some Crisco on your palm hand to prevent sticking)
Divide the fondant into two parts, wrap it with the Crisco poured wrap. Place the dough in the air tight container for a night.
On the following day, interchange your fondant with small a bit glycerine and shortening until it soft and supple.
(This fondant recipe can be used to cover one medium size cake, so you can make it more or less for each color as you wish)
