Birthday Cake

Deadpool cake 🙂
The sponge is the best tasting my littlun has ever made 🙂 The cake has a hidden ‘pool’ of seedless strawberry jam inside lol that ‘bleeds’ when it is cut into 🙂

  2. Oh no’s, Mini Deadpool, your arms!! Well, I guess even fictional antiheroes want to lay down their arms and rest once in a while…..

      I thought she’d done really well 🙂 The whole Marvel comics thing is quite new to me, having had 2 girls, but Deadpool is his favourite so.
      I’m curious to know though, how her cakes taste so much nicer than mine even though she uses the same recipe lol

        It’s really simple 🙂 for each egg you use 2 ozs each, of self raising flour, caster sugar and butter. (make sure the butter is soft though or it doesnt mix well) So, for 3 eggs you would use 6 ozs of butter, 6 ozs caster sugar, 6ozs of SR flour 🙂
        Bung everything in a bowl and mix it up with an electric mixer then bake at about 190/200 C until its cooked. Ovens vary so much so best to do a test one i think.
        My daughter used a semi-circular cake tin and it took about 45 mins until the skewer came out clean. The edges at the top were *just* starting to brown.
        The construction of the jammy reservoir was harder :-/
        When it was cooled, she carefully cut out a kind of rounded cone shape from the middle, coated the inside with a layer of butter icing before she put the seedless strawberry jam in, and cut away some of the cake to ‘narrow’ the “plug”, covered it thinly with butter icing then she put it back in place so there was room for the jam but it was a seamless join on top. Then she used shop bought red and black icing to cover it (it looked like play-doh lol)
        The bleed effect is better the more jam you use.
        The tin itself was a very lightweight one that needed to be greased with vegetable shortening instead of butter. Apparently butter and margarine contain water, which would encourage rust, but shortening is 100% fat.
        I hope that made sense!!
        If you give it a try, will you let me know how it goes? Xx

  4. Very cute! I love Sponge Cake!! One that bleeds sounds amazing. My son would love that for his birthday coming up. Is it a secret recipe or would you be willing to share?

  6. Bleeding cake! That’s new! I bet my son would enjoy that. Although after I’m done with it, Deadpool may just look like he got hit by a car, rather than a nice round cake that has jam inside, lol. I’m not much of a baker. Is it a difficult recipe? Or could a beginner execute it? 😋

    XOXO
