Mini Spiderman Cake

Mini Spiderman Cake - My kids birthdays are close. We celebrate their birthdays together and it became a yearly ritual.

Food Recipes > Mini Spiderman Cake (Ingredients )

This year my son is old enough to not want to share the same birthday cake with his sister. Considered that we were still able to do one party for them both, I thought making two cakes wasn’t really a big deal.

Despite the fact that I make cakes all the time, my son is never a cake person. He can be very picky when it comes to sweet stuff. It’s his birthday, it had to be something that I knew he would like. And what else would that be? The most boring Spiderman cake!

I didn’t go all crazy to build a fondant Spiderman sculpture. I’ve never liked to use fondant because it tastes gross to me, instead I used buttercream. The most challenging part is the coloring. The amount of coloring that you need to create the deep black and red color is enormous. The whole bottle of coloring paste! NO KIDDING!

My suggestion to you who is going to make deep red buttercream: get no-taste red coloring paste, because most of the red coloring paste has a bitter after taste if you have to use a large amount of color.
