Ace of the Cake

I love watching all those cake decorating shows that are on TV. I could totally get in to decorating cakes. So I thought I would challenge myself with a Spiderman theme cake for Alex's third birthday.

I is a chocolate sour cream cake with butter cream frosting, all homemade. I thought I would try out the decorative icing a few times on a cutting sheet before I attempted it on the cake.
And here is the cake with the frosting. Much harder that I thought. I did not have too many problems with the top, but if you look close, some of the lines on the edge are a bit wiggly. I seemed to get the hang of it just as I was finishing up.
And some final touches of a Spiderman candle and a 3....
Happy Birthday Alex......

Well done Amy but best of all Alex looks quite pleased with it so that's all that matters.

It looks great! You did a very good job. I also love the Ace of Cakes show because my other hobby is cake decorating, the first, of course is CQing.
