Spiderman Birthday

Oh, how I love Superhero themed birthdays!

This one in particular was a Spiderman themed birthday party. It started with a simple Spiderman Cake and some Spiderman Web Cupcakes to accompany it. The cake was a moist Marble Cake with Vanilla Buttercream.

For decor I kept it on the simple side with Spiderman’s face piped in the middle. Around the side was a birthday message with some web accents. I was really pleased with how the webs around the sides turned out. It tied everything together very well.

The Spiderman Web Cupcakes were a moist Vanilla Cake dyed Blue with fluffy Vanilla Buttercream and topped with Chocolate webs.

The webs were very fun to make and they added a great touch to the cupcakes and pulled the theme together. I really enjoyed this order and heard that the birthday boy was very pleased!

    how did you make the chocolate webs??

    • Sarah says:

      Lynette,

      Thank you for the comment! I made the webs by piping melted chocolate on waxed paper and then letting them harden in the fridge. Then I peeled them off, carefully, and placed them on top of the cupcakes!

    Hi Sarah
    The cake looks awesome !! hey what did you use to pipe the webs on the cake? is it dark melted chocolate … or something else??

    Thanks

      Priti,

      Thank you for the comments. Yes, the webs are melted chocolate piped on wax paper w/ a stencil underneath. I just used a sandwich bag with a small cut in the corner. You could also used a piping bag with a #1, #2 or #3 tip. Hope this helps! πŸ™‚

    Can you please give details on how you decorated the cake? Did you use a stencil for Spiderman’s face? Whatotip numbers? Also, how do you get your cakes so flat on top?

    • Sarah says:

      Jamie,

      Thanks for the comment. I use a stencil and trace it into the buttercream cake. I then pipe on top of the cake using various tips. Small round ones for the outline and then small star tips for the filling. I also use small round tip for writing and decorating. To get the cakes smooth on top and the sides I use a crusting buttercream frosting (also prevents color bleeding) and let it sit for a bit then use a Viva paper towel (has no patterns printed on it – non quilted) and smooth it with my hands or use a fondant smoothing tool. Hope this helps!

    Hi! Is the red icing a crusting buttercream as well?

    • Sarah says:

      Hello! Yes, the red and the blue icing are a crusting buttercream! I use both a combination of shortening and meringue powder to help the buttercream to crust. Thanks! πŸ™‚

    Hi! What size cake round did you use and how many layers? I’m going to attempt this for my 5 yr old’s birthday and hope to serve about 20 people. Thanks! You’re so talented!

      Hello! This cake is two layers and can be any size. The one in this image is a 6inch round. Too feed your amount of people I would suggest a 9inch or 10inch round, 2 layer cake. Thank you for the wonderful comments!
