James's 4th Birthday Cake

Spiderman, Spiderman Birthday Cake, Birthday Cake, Tiered Cake, Spider,

The past couple days, I have been a cake baking fool.  Yesterday was my nephew's fourth birthday party and I had a special request for a "really tall spiderman cake."  So that is what I made.  I was inspired by this cake.  The bottom layer is white cake with vanilla buttercream.  The middle layer is chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and the top layer is actually Rice Krispie treats with chocolate buttercream.  The cakes were covered in fondant and the buildings and spider were both made from black fondant.  Spiderman and the #4 were both piped candy melts.

Now for the sad part, because it is August here in the midwest, it was like 80 degrees and a million percent humidity spiderman melted.  I had removed spiderman to take separately (because we had a hour long car ride).  However, the spiderman and the four both melted on the way over (even in the air-conditioning).  I actually had three spidermen but they all melted.  Luckily, I had a spiderman figure I could stick on the top, but I was pretty frustrated! 


  1. This is so adorable! And how heartbreaking that your spidermen melted--dang summer heat! At least you got cute pictures beforehand. :)

    1. I know, I was so frustrated when I showed up to the party and spiderman was a big pile of mush. My nephew liked the toy though, so it worked out.
