I baked this cake for my son's 5th birthday. Spiderman was the party theme. The cake had seven layers, measuring around 9" in height. I began baking early Thursday morning, finishing late that evening after putting the "crumb coat" layer of icing on them. Friday morning I began decorating it and finished all but the front door, I told myself I'd do later. So much to do with decorating, food preparation and everything else, I forgot to add the door party day. The kids didn't care though!
