Beverly's Birthdays is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing birthday celebrations for homeless youth living in transitional shelters in the Pittsburgh region. Regardless of financial or personal circumstances, we believe that all children should have a special birthday celebration.
I was super excited when the founder, Megs, contacted me about baking for a Spider-Man themed party. Fun! I decided to make both cookies and cupcakes.
I used blue cupcake liners to keep with the Spider-Man color scheme, but it is hard to tell. I'm on the hunt for liners that will maintain a bright color even after the cupcakes are baked.
Initially I was afraid the butter-cream looked pink, but it darkened as it dried. I was pretty pleased with how the spiders turned out.
For the longest time I had an egg shaped cookie cutter floating around the kitchen. It would have been perfect for a Spider-Man face. So of course I couldn't find it when the time came. I did, however, find my 3/4 cup measuring cup in a bag of flour.
I ended up using a round cookie cutter, and actually liked the result.
