Take a look at these cool Spider Man cake ideas and find inspiration for making your own!
I made the cake from a packet vanilla cake mix, which I make all my kids’ birthday cakes from. Mostly they don’t call for eggs to be added or butter, but I always add it and people always compliment me on my cakes being so moist. The kids also love them. I make the buttercream icing and spend most of my time coloring it and chasing my kids away from me while I am doing it :-)
I made this Spider Man cake for my son who was turning 3 and has a very bad case of Spiderman envy, he will only answer to Spiderman at the moment. The cake went down very well and I also had lots of orders put in from all the other mothers.
Firstly, I don’t bake! I order a half “plaatkoek” from our local supermarket and request that they don’t put any icing on. Then – I spend some time on the internet or coloring-in books looking for pictures.
Once I’ve found something to work with, I print and enlarge to an A3. Then I cut out the picture and place it on the cake, holding it with pins. I cut around the edges so that you have the basic outline.
I then spread a thin layer of butter icing over the whole surface (for each cake I use a 500g brick margarine and about 1kg icing and a lot of different food colorings). Use a toothpick to make “pencil lines” for your insides. I fill in between the lines first and then do the outlines.
For this Spider Man cake, I did the inside lines first and filled the red in afterwards – much easier to do it the other way around. Power ranger:

This spider man cake is simply a round cake iced in my sons favorite color- orange! Then I piped a spiderweb on and added one of his spiderman crawling guys to the top. He loved it!
For this Spider man cake I did a follow up from a toy that my son found of Spiderman hunched down and shooting his web. We wanted something different and came up with this.
I used a small tip on the decorating bag and colored frosting and there you have it!
