Spiderweb Cakes

Scrap stayed up well past bath time last night working on his cakes for the nursery sale today. They were a practice run for his Superhero 4th birthday party next month and they turned out well though the green icing looked a bit more Halloween than the menacing Spiderman Vs Green Goblin vibe he was aiming for.
He cracked four eggs into a bowl and matched the weight with sugar, self raising flour and room temperature butter. He added a drop of vanilla extract and the grated rind of 1 orange then did some vigorous mixing. He then divided it into 16 muffin cases and baked them at 180C for 18 minutes. Green icing, a few sugar sprinkles and some squashed, squid-like spiders made from black regalice and they were ready.
