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.
Happy Birthday, sweetheart! You’re growing up so fast!
P.S. Check out the Halloween version of these spiderweb cupcakes!

Thanks for the easy directions for cute Spiderman cupcakes. I made these for my daughter’s superhero themed party. I liked the look of the cupcakes with 3 rings instead of 2 for the web. Definitely need a clean toothpick for each cupcake to get a nicer look. The kids loved them! Thanks for posting!
So glad you like them, Tabitha! And thanks for the great comment and tips! Happy Holidays!!
Vicky, I repinned this a while back, and the repins of my repins are getting completely out of hand. It’s at 750 now. I hope your blog is at least getting more traffic from this! It’s a very clever spiderweb technique.
Thanks so much for pinning this! I’m so glad you like this and that other people do too!
