I made this Spiderman cake for my son’s 4th birthday. I used Wilton’s Spiderman cake pan and an 18 in. square pan for the base.

It was my first time decorating a cake, so I think it came out pretty good. My son loved it and everybody complimented me. I used buttercream icing for the decoration.

It took me a lot of time and it was harder than I thought, but it was worth it. The most difficult part for me is trying to make the buttercream smooth on top and on the sides, because the borders does not get covered well, and the cake shows underneath, so I decided to make a design on the sides and it worked out for me.

It took me less time and the presentation came out better, so if you have the same problem, this is an idea that will save you time and some headaches!
