I love this - the colors are so cheerfully fall.  Smiley

@Ladybugsandbumblebees - Not my idea, sadly.  I've seen several Halloween cakes using marshmallow spiderwebs on Pinterest.  Surprisingly not that popular on Spiderman-themed cakes, though.  I've seen a handful. Smiley
3  COOKING / Dessert / Spiderman web cake on: November 11, 2019 09:34:41 AM
My kiddo had his fourth birthday party last weekend at the playground near our house.  He wanted a superhero/Spiderman themed party, and it was a big hit. Smiley  Picture 25 4-5 year olds running around in capes and masks like crazy. I found a package of 24 capes/masks (and stickers to decorate) for 40 dollars on Amazon - favors and crafts all in one.

While I made cupcakes to pass out at the party, I made a small 6 in cake as a centerpiece for the snack table.  It had a blue/red watercolor effect and webbing made out of melted marshmallows that I stuck to my fingers and draped on the cake. Watercolor effect was created by dabbing red/blue icing all over a white frosted cake and then using a straight edge to smooth it on a turntable.

Kiddo still had to have a piece of the cake before we left and licked the serving knife clean.  Wink

I think if you dipped them in chocolate dyed green they would look like adorable frogs. Super cute!

9  COOKING / Dessert / Ouija cookie cake on: October 14, 2019 08:24:34 PM
My husband turned 40 today, and he loves the artistry in old Ouija boards. (he's a designer/creative, and it fits his aesthetic). I made this cake to celebrate him.   Grin

It's a yellow cake with chocolate icing baked in a 9x13 pan, but the board and planchette are made of sugar cookie dough. I used a woodgraining tool to spread brown icing on it for a subtle wood look (I just watched YouTube videos for how to use one) and then printed out pictures of Ouija boards to make sure my royal icing was true to type fonts for all the words/pictures. After they dried, I put them on the cookie with a dab of frosting. The planchette is elevated on tiny cookie feet. Here are some progress pics.

And just cause...
10  COOKING / Dessert / Rainbow heart cake and a sad story on: September 25, 2019 09:51:42 AM
Hello!  This is a cake for a sweet friend....sadly, the cake died a horrible death this morning while I was driving it to work after leaping from my passenger side seat to the car floor mat below, where it drowned in an entire cup of coffee I had just managed to spill.  (I blame the knocked over coffee for me knocking over the cake in my haste to save my purse/car.  So...really I'm to blame, lol.)  (I still snuck in a bite that wasn't covered in foot coffee.  It was delicious!)

My friend had to leave work early to pick up a sick kiddo anyway, so we wouldn't have been able to celebrate her today as it is.  We'll reconvene with cupcakes once little one is better.  But for a brief moment, this cake was great!   Cheesy  My three year old has already decided that he wants one just like it for his "home" birthday celebration when he turns four in a few weeks.  I did not realize that we were having multiple celebrations that would require multiple cakes.   Cheesy Wink
