I have a special needs grandson who loves spiderman. I am a beginner cake decorator and I want to make him a tier cake with a spiderman theme. Any Ideas. He will be 7 in a couple of weeks.
you could make the tiers to look like the city buildings then have spiderman on top.
It would look neat if you made the top tier red and then piped a spiderweb on the top and draped it down the sides of the top tier. You could make the bottom layer a royal blue with his name in red. You could buy an action figure to place on top so that he could play with it afterwards. I just saw a commercial for WalMart and they have all the new Spiderman 3 figures now. I'm sure you could find one that would work. Good Luck with it. I know he will love whatever you come up with. Post some pics when you're done.
I am a beginner too and would go the easy route - for me, I would do a sheet cake w/ streets. Then form sky scrappers out of rice crispies. It would be easy, colors well and molds great. Then sit those on top of a sheet cake Then you could buy a figurine and attach him to the building. I know they have several characters that you could add around the town as well.
Good Luck! Please post a picture!
there are some really cute spiderman cakes on here. My first one I just copied and enlarged pic from comic book and piped onto sheet cake. was really easy but buying the figurines is definitely the easiest I like the 3 d ones on here Good luck
I'm new at this and everyone has been so helpful and nice, but I have no idea what piping is?? I would really like it if someone could take a second and tell me. Thanks
