Spiderman Cake







Feels like forever since I've made a cake, but I'm back! My nephew Sean LOVES Spiderman, so it's only fitting that he get a spiderman cake for his birthday. I had a hard time getting the buttercream to be really red. For a double batch of buttercream, I used an entire bottle of the no-taste red, plus some burgundy, plus a little more red. In the end I was happy with the color, but for a while I was really afraid this was going to be the first pink spiderman cake. The longer it sits, the darker it gets.

The cake itself is a white cake that I striped blue by dividing the batter into 2 bowls and dying one bowl blue, and leaving the other white. Then, alternating by a spoonful at a time, I layered the colors into the pan before baking. My circles were not quite concentric as the center seemed to spread all over the place. I think my counters aren't level. But, it all worked out because the cake was frosted, so you couldn't tell. My nephew thought they looked like webs through the cake. That works!
