everytime i search for a spiderman cake...they are always done in special shaped tins...does anyone have any ideas on how to do a spiderman cake that doesnt need special tins...and i tend to do 3d cakes...or ones with figures on...any ideas????
I know I have seen in the gallery a really neat cake that was made to look like a building with a spidey figure and maybe a bad guy on it. I think something like that is pretty neat idea!
Go to DECOPAC.COM (a supplier of cake supplies for most retail bakeries)and search for SPIDERMAN. There are images of the SIGNATURE SPIDERMAN CAKE that has a figurine on a stacked rooftop design. Perhaps you could use the basic idea from there. I did a cutout Spiderman shaped cake years ago, but I will have to scan the photo. I'll add my photo as soon as I can locate it & upload it for you.
aww thanks so much...ill look forward to seeing it
sorry no pic to share...
but I took a standard 9" two-tier round and did just half of Spidey's face.
if you google "spiderman cake" you'll get lots and lots of ideas to inspire..most NOT in the special shaped pan. One even has black royal icing string work to make the web come off the the cake!
I have 2 pics in my gallery you can check out! They are on 1/2 sheets.
just seen at WalMart: a cupcake cake -- oval shaped w/ spiderman face.
great idea but...the execution was terrible.
awwww wow, thanks for all your comments and photos...i agree that one with buildings on is brill...a very original idea. i'll let you all know how it goes....thanks again for all your help
You can get a picture of Spiderman from a coloring book etc. and you can use tinted piping gel to trace onto wax paper then transfer to sheet cake. Add spiderweb cupcakes on top for 3d effect.
This is one that I did for a little boy's birthday and it was a hit. As you can see by the shape, is very easy to do and is also 3D. You can decorate the cake w/out coloring the icing, then spray the cake with wilton red color mist. After you spray the entire cake red, use a small butter knife and with the tip scrape several lines across and down on all sides of the cake (so that the white icing color comes through making it look like brick walls). For the roof I sprinkle black sugar to make it look like tar. All you need is to buy the toy for the top.
Hi, I am new on this site but I will try and upload a spider man cake that I made for my nephew using candy buildings. Sorry, I wasn't able to upload the image in this site but if you e-mail me at [email protected] I can send it to you directly. Please use spiderman cake as the subject.
this is a pic of a spiderman cake i did a few years ago. it is 3 6 in stacked onto a 10 in round. the buildings are candy set to shape. the cars are gum drops cut and shaped togethor. the customer had the topper that had spidey on top of a building but sorry to say i don't have a pic of it with the top. hope this helps and cant wait to see what you make!![/img]
thats brilliant!!!...ive just started to make the spiderman model now...i couldnt find a toy ANYWHERE because they are bringing out batman toys instead....so it looks like i have to make one from icing....and its proving to be very difficult! im starting the cake tomorrow...and ive took ideas from all of you who have replied....im putting buildings on...but not from candy melts (too adventurous for me!) so im just putting fondant buildings on the side of the cake...i have to say if this spiderman figure on the top comes out out actually looking like spiderman...id be very suprised!!! wish me luck...i'll post a pic here as soon as ive done it...but please still post ur spiderman pics here...i could easily change my mind about something along the way as she doesnt need it till sunday.
Came out very nice!
Great job. It came out beautiful.
Looks great! I love all of the details you included. I think your Spiderman turned out super! It looks like you put a lot of time into it.
it took me 4 days!!! n the longest bit was the spiderman,...i made it from white fondant then painted it with watered down paste. i'll never do another spiderman again!
Button-moon, I know the pain of making spiderman. i have made one by myself also. (long time ago) I had no idea of gumpaste at that time and the weather was really humid and hot so it was one of the biggest pain figures i have ever made. It was literally melting between my hands.and lets not talk about painting the little guy. End of the day he didn't look like he was crawling but swimming in the cake
At the party kids were walking around with the blue and red faces from all the color from the figure.
I did spiderman as a FBCT. It's in my album if this link doesn't work
yeah, i certainly learnt alot from doing that figure!
sheilaf, that cake is brill, i wish id opted for something a little simpler now!
Thanks. FBCT's seem to be my calling
