Spiderman Cake

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine asked if I could make a cake for her son’s birthday party. There were two requests: dulce de leche filling and Spiderman! After a bit of discussion, we settled on the exact cake flavors (vanilla seemed to fit best to not overpower the dulce de leche) and on a design for the cake. She told me that he absolutely loves the Spiderman webs, so I focused the design of the cake on Spiderman’s signature colors (red and blue) and the spider webs.

Below is a front-view of the cake. Both layers are vanilla cake, filled with dulce de leche and frosted with buttercream icing. The spiders and webs are hand-drawn using piping gel tinted with black dye.

And a bit better view of the webbing on top of the cake. I think my favorite part of this cake are the little spiders on the bottom layer. Normally, I hate spiders because they give me the heebee-jeebees, but I think these spiders are just adorable! 🙂

I had a lot of fun making this cake! And while I didn’t get to see the look on his face when he first caught sight of the cake, I’m sure the birthday boy was happy with his Spiderman cake!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options
    out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations?

    Thanks a lot!
