Sneek Peek: Practice Cake!

I am getting ready for Christopher's Birthday Party! I know its still a little early but I love planning things and getting ready for anything that has to do with my son!

Happy butt!

Well, I had a hard time trying to decide if I wanted to a single theme or a mash up of all his favorite things. I decided to go with a single theme of Spiderman, because its easier to find and less hassle for me to get just one theme items.

I looked at cakes at Walmart and they had some pretty nice Spiderman cakes, but they were a little to pricey for me if I wanted to get a pinata (I do!) and so I thought about making my own cake, just a square cake with some basic decorations. I went to Michaels to get some cake stuff and found a Spiderman cake pan! I snatched it up and got the stuff to make it as good as I could. I think it turned out ok, for my first try, and I know it will be better the next time! I am very excited about it and have to share the process, I hope you like it!

The tools.
 In the oven.
 Still in the took a long time.
 I overfilled the cake pan so it split and was a little burned, but I cut that part off.
 Out of the pan, before the frosting.
 Black and white parts done.
 Red parts done.
 Blue parts done.
 Finished with the trim.
 I made one good cake, next time the spider on the chest and black by the eyes will be better.
