Hi! I am doing a Spiderman cake for my nephew but time got away from me and I don't have time to order the Spiderman transfer for the top. It's going to be a round cake and for the sides, I'm piping chocolate onto wax paper in the shape of buildings and then dotting those with white chocolate for lights in the windows. I'll stand them up around the sides (with chocolate frosting on the sides of the cake). I'm blanking on what to do with the top of the cake instead of doing the transfer. Any ideas??? It has to be Spiderman, but I don't think little figures are going to do the trick. My sister's picky. lol Thanks!

How about a web on the top of the cake with FBCT of Spiderman

Welcome to CC. icon_smile.gif What a coincidence I am making a spiderman and batman cake for a birthday gift this Saturday. I plan on a round cake for the bottum with alternating logos attached to sides of the round cake. A smaller square pan with many layers will be set on top of the larger round cake. I am making chocolate transfer buildings I will attach to the square cake. The top of the larger round cake will have a buttercream road and real toy cars. At the top of the cake I am going to have a chocolate transfer spiderman and batman with the message written in Spidermans web. This idea is taken from looking at the many children's birthday cakes in the CC gallery.

Thanks for the ideas! They're very very very much appreciated!

mazaryk... Where did you get the transfers for your cake? I'm usually very traditional in how I make my cakes but I'm wanting to branch out and learn new things so that's partly why I'm taking on this cake. The buildings will be a fun experience for sure! LOL I'll probably go with the web and have 'Happy Birthday' written in there somewhere.

Thanks again!

Here is the tutorial for the FBCT (Frozen Buttercream Transfer): http://cakecentral.com/article12-How-To-Create-a-Frozen-Buttercream-Transfer.html

The Stewie on the cake in my photos is a FBCT.

A chocolate transfer is the same as above, except you are using compound chocolate instead and there is no need for freezing. Compound chocolate is also called melting wafers, confectionary coating, coating chocolate. I just re-read your post, and a chocolate transfer would be what you are doing for the buildings(though you are doing them freehand, and for the transfer you can put a picture underneath and "trace" the lines).

please post a picture when you make it, it sounds great!

Oh I saw that link earlier today and thought it was awesome! I'm going to use my husband's amazing art skills to trace out some buildings so I can cheat. LOL Thanks so much for that link! I forgot to bookmark it earlier but it's in there now. icon_wink.gif

The top pics were found using this link posted here on CC


The buildings I drew freehand after looking at pics of Marvel Superhero Island. I cant find the link so here are the pics.
