My middle son is having his 7th birthday party tomorrow, so I thought a 007 spy cake would be perfect. I am not a professional cake decorator, so I came up with a simple design using two round cakes and one square one.
I used Duncan Hines Cake mixes, but I used 2 tbsp less water and half the oil called for in the recipe in order to make the cake more dense and easy to work with. Then, I carefully carved out the numbers, covered them in a crumb coats, and stuck them in the refrigerator. When the icing was firm, I added a finishing coat of frosting.
I decorated the cakes with dollar store magnifying glasses, sunglasses, and black icing footprints.
Didn't it turn out cute? Have you ever had a spy themed birthday? What kind of cake did you have?
