preparation

mini-spiderman-cake-4515.jpg 1.  To prepare the cake, preheat over to 350F. Grease three 5-inch round cake pans and line bottoms with parchment paper.

2.  In a large bowl, mix together sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

3.  Crack in the egg, spoon in the sour cream, and pour in the oil and the vanilla. Mix with a wooden spoon until just combined.

4.  Pour in the boiling water, and slowly mix until smooth and liquidy.

5.  Divide batter evenly among prepared cake pans. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

6.  Let cakes cool in the pans for 15 minutes. Then invert the cakes onto a greased rack. Cool completely before frosting.

7.  To prepare chocolate buttercream, beat butter for a few minutes in a standing mixer with the paddle attachment on medium speed. Add powdered sugar and turn the mixer on low, beat until the sugar incorporates with the butter.

8.  Add vanilla, heavy cream and cocoa powder, beat on medium speed for another 3 minutes, or until buttercream becomes light and fluffy.

9.  To prepare vanilla buttercream, beat butter for a few minutes in a standing mixer with the paddle attachment on medium speed. Add powdered sugar and turn your mixer on low, beat until the sugar incorporates with the butter. Add vanilla and heavy cream, beat on medium speed for another 3 minutes, or until buttercream becomes light and fluffy.

10.  Transfer 1/4 cup white frosting to a piping bag with a small round tip for Spiderman’s inner eyes.

11.  For black outline, scoop 1/4 cup white frosting. Add black coloring and mix until combined. Transfer the black frosting to a piping bag with a small round tip.

12.  Add red food coloring to the remaining frosting, mix until combined.

13.  To assemble the cake, place one cake layer on your serving plate and spread with 1/3 cup chocolate frosting. Place another cake layer on top, and gently press down a little bit. Spread with another 1/3 cup chocolate frosting. Place the last layer of cake on top, frost the top and the sides of the cake with the red frosting.

14.  Chill the cake in the refrigerator.

15.  Outline Spiderman’s face in a 5-inch circle on a parchment paper. Place the image face up on the cake surface, and prick the outlines with a needle to leave tiny holes in the buttercream.

16.  Pipe black frosting along the pricked outlines, and fill the outer border of Spideman’s eyes.

17.  Fill the inner eyes with white frosting.

18.  Use the black frosting to pipe spiderweb over the sides of the cake. First pipe long vertical black lines, then connect the web with curved black lines.

19.  Cover and refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator an hour before serving.
