Next on my cupcakes list to do for Birthday Dreams (bringing cupcakes to homeless kids) was for Spiderman cake .. WELL what I wrote down was Spiderman what it was suppose to be was Batman. I felt like such a boob, so have to much on my plate ... ugh.
What you Need:
Spider Cookie Cutter (I bought mine at Halloween from Michael's)
Spiderman cookie Cutter (I bought mine on Ebay)
Black Modeling Chocolate
Red Modeling Chocolate
White Modeling Chocolate
I found a recipe for Moist Chocolate Cupcakes on Food.com and made them, they smelled so good! This was a great easy and yummy recipe!
While the cupcakes were cooling, I found a recipe for Easy Chocolate Buttercream Frosting on Good Cheap Eats. Another super easy and yummy frosting, I found it a little thick so I added extra heavy cream to make it easier to pipe onto the cupcakes.
For those who have not seen my previous post on how to make modeling chocolate (aka candy clay) all pictured but the orange.
12oz Candy Melts
1/4 Cup light corn Syrup
Melt your Candy Melts in microwave (mine takes about 2 minutes). Stir them to become smooth and add the corn syrup. It will become thick and form a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and let it sit out and dry. Takes a few hours or over night is best. (Alexis note: I found to roll this out use a little powder sugar (like you would do with flour), also you have to kneed it a little like you would dough to make it easy to roll out).
For the Eyes I cut a small red circle from the candy clay. I then took the inner eye and made white eyes that I attached to the red.
For the spider's I used a spider cookie cutter to cut out black spiders.
I attached the Spiderman Eyes and Spiders to the top of a frosted cupcake.
I box them up in the great clear cupcake boxes I picked up on Amazon.
And deliver them to the shelter.
Have a great week!
Thanks for Stopping by!
