When you love Spiderman as much as my son does, you don't have a choice but to make the hero the center of your world also because I love my son almost as much as he loves Spiderman, and that is saying a lot!
I made this cake a year ago for his 3rd birthday and looks like he will be just too happy if I repeat it because he loves Spidey all the more if that is even possible :) With the new movie that is going to be released in July, we have some more Spidey overdose to live with in the near future.
The cake might look very complicated but was actually not that hard to make. What made it hard was that instead of just choosing a simple cake - I made this also as a Strawberry Shortcake cake and that complicated things a bit. I used 1 and a half times the required ingredients for this size. I did cut this cake also into two and then stuffed the middle with the strawberry filling + icing, but for the top - I did not do that, I used the cream cheese icing and then followed the instructions for decorations as is from the instruction sheet.
Note 1 : I used cream cheese icing instead of the recommended butter cream icing as I had a lot of it and it worked just fine.
I got the Spiderman pan from Michaels and it is this one by Wilton.
The instructions that come with the pan are very detailed and self explanatory and were all I used to make the decoration on the top.
Note 2: Make sure you coat the pan generously with the spray and also with flour. I did that and all the indentations came out perfectly on the cake without sticking to the bottom and make it so much easier to decorate.
And the amazement on your Spidey lover's face will be so worth it!
