i'm doing a cake this weekend. the kid wanted a drum cake then changed his mind to spider man so i jokingly suggested a spiderman drum cake just being funny and the mom totally went with it, lol... so.... i she wants a 3 tier tiled drums with something to make it look spider man also. i am making a fondant spiderman for the top and piping spider webs on the top also and maybe sides of the drums but i don't want to over do it.
anyway, the kid also kept asking for the green goblin but he looks really complicated. has anyone ever done a green goblin out of fondant? even just the face would work i think
so here's my main concern, she is doing a combined party with both her kids and i am doing an alice cake with tons of little fondant details so i dont' want the drum cake to look plain next to the alice cake. can anyone suggest some other details i can do fomr spiderman?
You could add a fondant Venom - Spiderman's nemesis. That's what I did for my cupcakes, and the birthday boy loved them! Hope that helps!
You could also use any spiderman toys the boy may have, or buy some plastic figurines and charge for those. That's what publix did to me 2 years ago, before I discoved my love for cake decorating.
Make it look like the drums are a Spiderman set of drums. edible images on the sides would be easy like a logo and the tops of the drums with a web. If you had that flexible icing stuff that makes soft lace you could make webs out of that and have them draped over the sides like it was webbed together holding it up topsy turvy like.
sorry I couldn't remember before the flexible stuff is sugarveil
