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.

Method

Method

  1. Cut out the two templates and cut the white parts out of one of them.
  2. Place the whole template on one of the cake boards and cut to the right size. NOTE: Leave the other one as is.
  3. Level your two cakes using a serrated knife.
  4. Brush some Simple Syrup onto the cut sides of the cakes.
  5. 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.
  6. Place the other cake layer upside down onto the chocolate buttercream and pipe a dot of chocolate buttercream on top.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Refrigerate for about an hour to firm up.
  10. Roll out the black fondant, to 0,5 centimetres thick, so it’s big enough to drape over the cake.
  11. Drape it over the cake and smooth it down.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
