Spiderman Birthday Cake

by Deanne Ward
(Decatur, Al)


I made this Spiderman Birthday Cake for my grandsons 7th birthday. The building around the bottom layer is made out of sugar cookies. The white building in the middle is made of crispy treats with sugar windows, and a light inside.


A Little More About My Spiderman Cake



The bottom layer of the cake was chocolate I used a square wedding cake pan, 2 layers. The cookie around the bottom was a basic sugar cookie, I colored the sugar with edible chalk. I was trying to get a grey look, but it came out more of a purple. I decorated the details of cookies with black cookie icing.

The second tier was marble cake. I made the little spiders out of gum paste and used black butter cream for the webs.

The third tier was constructed out of rice crispy treats. I cut windows and poured boiled sugar for the windows, then attached each wall using white chocolate and covered it in white chocolate as well.

The top tier is actually a cheat, I used a bought sponge cake, on top of that I covered an ice cream cone in butter cream to top it off. The spiderman is not edible, it's a toy.

The letters on the cake are made of colored chocolate I used a mold for them. I had to deliver this cake in pieces 300 miles and then to the skating rink for my grandsons party. The idea was to get into the party room at east 20 min early to stack the cake and add the border and everything.

But... didn't work out that way. They said I could have 10 minutes, as that parties that day were back to back. I was frantic and kids were in and out. I hated that I couldn't take my time. My piping is needless to say sloppy, but all in all I was pleased with it and my grandson? Well, he thought his Nanny was genius!
