Spiderman Returns: Happy 5th Birthday Vegan Son #3

Ah, another birthday, another cake. Vegan Son #3 requested the Spiderman cake I made for Vegan Son #2 last year. I like this cake because it has a simple colour scheme and the pan comfortably fits a double cupcake recipe. The webs are a little tedious, but all in all it is a relatively easy cake to make.

This cake looks amazing! Kudos to you and the patience that must have taken.

I always wonder about red food colouring though - what is used to give it such a vibrant colour? I always assumed it was carmine (from insects).

Cheers! Love your blog.

This looks fantastic! What do you use for food colouring to create such vibrant colours?

And happy birthday to Vegan Son #3 :) It's my sister's birthday as well. I just made a chocolate "mayonnaise" cake with a periwinkle "buttercream" icing. But my father mutilated it by dropping a stack of plates on it :\

Amazing! Am I allowed to say that? You know, because he's featured in the comic "The Amazing Spider-man."

Wow, I am very impressed! Fantastic job!! Do you use normal food coloring or are you able to find vegetable based colorings?

Re: food colouring. I use the Wilton gel colouring. I was pretty sure it was vegan, but I will have to check the ingredient list for carmine.
