Spiderman Cake

25 Oct

(The cake inside is BLUE!)

My inspiration for this cake came from this handsome man…

I made it for my nephew’s 4th birthday. He loves Spiderman so much. Like a lot. So I decided to try making him a free handed cake rather than buying the Spiderman cake tin.

Sorry I don’t have step-by-step pictures of the cake but it was super simple to make. I was a little pressed for time so I had to cave and use a boxed cake. I filled a 3 qt. pan with all the cake batter and baked according to the directions on the box. After the cake was done cooling, I wrapped it in plastic wrap and then put it in the freezer for about 15 minutes so I would be able to carve the shape of the face without crumbs going everywhere.

After you get the shape you want for the face, cover it in layer of buttercream. I used a very thin layer of Duff fondant to cover the cake because I really wanted that red Spiderman color. Whenever I try to make red buttercream it comes out pink so I didn’t want to take any chances, however if you don’t like fondant, just use buttercream instead. Then I cut out the shape of the eyes using black and white fondant. After those were made, I used black buttercream to create the webs across the face while looking at a picture of Spiderman so I could make it look as close as possible. Add a little bit of buttercream to the eyes to act as glue to keep them together, then attach them to the cake. I think I could have made the shape a lot better, but I’m by no means a professional! What do you think?
