Pokémon Team Skull Cakes! Yummy and relatively easy cakes to make. Were they your favourite bad guys as well? Or do you just like their logo? Either way it's a nice recipe to make!
Remember you can make most of my recipes lactose free, which I always do, you'll just have to get the right ingredients.
What you'll need
- 1,5 Batches of Vanilla Cake*
- 1 Batches of Chocolate Buttercream
- Small Amount of Simple Syrup
- 500 grams of Black Fondant
*Baked in two springform pans with a diameter of 18,5 cm.
What you'll need
- 2 Printed Templates
- Serrated Knife
- Pastry Brush
- Bread or Palette Knife
- Fondant Tools (Ball Tool or other rounded tool)
- 2 Cake Boards (Ø20 cm or more)
- Optional: (Disposable) Piping bag
- Optional: Rotating Cake Stand
- Cut out the two templates and cut the white parts out of one of them.
- Place the whole template on one of the cake boards and cut to the right size. NOTE: Leave the other one as is.
- Level your two cakes using a serrated knife.
- Brush some Simple Syrup onto the cut sides of the cakes.
- Place one of the cakes on a cake board, not the cut one, and pipe on a layer of chocolate buttercream. Spread it out with a palette knife.
- Place the other cake layer upside down onto the chocolate buttercream and pipe a dot of chocolate buttercream on top.
- Now place the other cake board, cut side down, onto it. And carve off the pieces of cake that stick out from the cutting board.
- Place upside down, remove the non-cut cake board from the top and pipe buttercream around the sides and top. Smooth this out using a palette knife.
- Refrigerate for about an hour to firm up.
- Roll out the black fondant, to 0,5 centimetres thick, so it’s big enough to drape over the cake.
- Drape it over the cake and smooth it down.
- Place the template, without the white parts, on top and gently indent the pattern onto your cake using a fondant tool with a small ball at the end.
- Combine silver or gold food colouring with a little bit of lemon juice to create an edible paint and brush it onto the cake to fill in the pattern.
