Our oldest son recently celebrated his 4th birthday.  Like most boys his age, he is completely obsessed with Spider-Man because he’s super cool and also because he is mostly red, which is our son’s favorite color.  We made spiderweb cupcakes which featured a picture of our son’s face with a Spider-Man mask.  The cupcakes were very easy to make and were a big hit. Here’s how we did it:

1. Frost cupcakes with white icing.
2. Using red icing with a decorator’s tip, pipe two or three concentric circles on top.
3. Drag a clean toothpick from the center of the cupcake to the outside six times to create the webbed look.
4. Put pictures of the birthday boy’s face on toothpicks and stick in each cupcake.

So easy!

Happy Birthday, sweetheart! You’re growing up so fast!
