When you are throwing a party for someone who loves Spiderman, allow the theme to carry through all aspects of the event, including the cake. Cupcakes are a personalized, bite-size spin on a traditional cake. Give your cupcakes some personality with cute Spiderman decorations. You don't have to have a lot of baking experience to create perfect cupcakes.
Things You'll Need
* 1 box white cake mix
* Red food coloring
* Blue food coloring
* Red and blue cupcake liners
* 2 cans white frosting
* Black food coloring
* Fine tip
* Pastry bag
* Spider-web rings
1 Follow the instructions on a box of white cake mix to make the batter. Separate the batter equally into two bowls.
2 Put drops of red food coloring in the batter in one of the bowls. Stir the batter, and keep adding food coloring until you get the bright red color you desire. Repeat the process with the batter in the other bowl and blue food coloring.
3 Line your cupcake pan with paper cupcake liners, half red and half blue.
4 Fill the blue cupcake liners with red batter, and fill the red cupcake liners with blue batter. Bake the cupcakes as directed on the box of cake mix.
5 Frost the cupcakes with one can of white icing when they have completely cooled.
6 Squeeze black food coloring into the second can of white frosting. Stir the icing, and keep adding food coloring until you achieve a deep black color.
7 Fit a fine tip into a pastry bag, and then fill the bag with the black icing. Pipe a spider-web design onto each cupcake.
Wash and dry a package of plastic spider-web rings. Place a ring onto the top of each cupcake. The rings will look cute and serve as a party favor.
