Spiderman! Who doesn’t know and love spidey? After all what isn’t there to love about a grown man who can climb walls, and make webs like a spider. Well even though kids don’t see him that way, he’s still pretty awesome. So when I was challenged to make a Spiderman cake for my nephew’s 7th birthday, who was I to say no?
The big challenge? Making sure there was enough cake for 20+ people. So of course that meant 2 cakes. Not a problem. So once I hunted down and ordered the right pan, the challenge became how to make this one cake look even cooler with a second one.
So I had the idea to make it look like Spiderman was sitting on a web. Unfortunately as luck would have it, Spidey was heavy, and he would have not only covered the majority of the second cake, he would have crushed it too. In the end the actual design of the second cake turned into a pretty cool looking web with writing in it as well:
The spider web is actually made out of Twizzlers- the pull and peel kind. And then just carefully arranged to look like the web. All in all I had one very happy birthday boy on my hands.
Until next time. Happy baking!
