I have the tutorial on the 3d spiderman cake that I'm going to attempt to make. I was curious, I do not own an airbrush gun and I haven't been successful at getting a true red crusting buttercream, any suggestions on either? The can spray paints? Or tips or tricks? Also I'm curious how the webbing under the face is done? It doesn't look like there is enough space to get under there? Thanks!

I am attempting to make this cake this weekedn for my best friends son. I am planing on using red fondant to cover instead of butter cream. I can not get butter cream true RED either. As for the webbing I plan on using fondant for that to. I hate royal icing, but only because I need to practice with it more. Good Luck and post pics

I can never get my fondant really red either! Any tips on that? I thought the webbing would be really tough to do with fondant. I can't wait to see yours! I have a little ways but I wanted to start the research now!

I made this cake for a friend years ago. Luckily my skills have improved. But the red in the spiderman figure is Satin Ice Red fondant. It's a beautiful red that truly holds its color well.

I made this same Spiderman Bust Cake a year ago but I made the head out of Cake. It was ALL edible! My Red turned out great using Wilton's NO TASTE Red but I did use a lot of it lol. Good Luck on your Cakes they will be great!

Ai usually get the red i need by usind lots and lots and lots of coloring. its really bad when it tuns out pink. also there are different shades of red if you get the gel kind, so the darker one might work for your spiderman.

I would also go with pre-colored red fondant. This cake (made in 2009 - during my ghetto cake decorating days) was made with Wilton Red and Buttercream (Had to use to entire jar of red - and people were practically pooping red)

This Red - is purchased red fondant (skills improved in 2010)

I either airbrush for red or buy the Satin Ice ready made red.

I used Wilton's No Tast Red and Orange...more Red but that's How I got mine Red, turned out lovely!

I have used a lot of red coloring plus some melted red wilton chocolate melts and add to the buttercream.  When it dries it turns a deeper red.
