- Step 4: After following the 3rd step, cool the blend for 10 min, shift to a wire rack, and again cook for 10 min
- Step 5: Hold a knife to straighten the sponge tops. Equally spread store-bought or homemade buttercream on top of the two cakes, and also try to create equal layers on the sides
- Step 6: Finish the step of putting one cake on the other
- Step 7: Roll out green frosting that has been pre-rolled. Nicely place it all over your 2-layer cake, then hold a knife to get rid of any excess

A fun tutorial for a Fortnite battle bus cake
The battle bus of Fortnite is an awesome part of the video game. And so this cake is inspired by that bus. But Fortnite battle bus cake is a bit trickier to prepare, consisting of icing that is ready to use.
- Step 1: Firstly, you have to find a Battle Bus picture. It will help you in recreating the correct shape. Plus, the important elements that you need to form are the blue bus, yellow and blue top balloon, front yellow and red lights and pipe, and black windows
- Step 2: Bake a chocolate or vanilla sponge cake according to the earlier mentioned recipe, but prefer rectangle-shaped cake pans
- Step 3: Roll out a big amount of blue fondant frosting and use it to cover your 2-layer rectangle cake

- Step 5: The hardest part will be the yellow balloon. While if we talk about the game, then it usually stays in the air- above the bus. But as this isn’t possible on the cake, we would recommend you to mold a piece of white icing and put it on top of the icing square in black.
