Spiderman Cupcakes

Dear Internets,

My nephew thinks of me as the cupcake lady. Any time I talk to him on the phone, he says something like, "You bring me Spiderman (or George, or WALL-E/EVE, or Batman) cupcakes?" Of course, he's way too cute for me to say anything but yes.

Here are some Spiderman cupcakes I made him this weekend. They're devil's food cake with cream cheese icing. (Cream cheese icing isn't the best for decorating, but I haven't yet managed to find a recipe for a buttercream icing that I can stand to eat.)


I forgot to take pictures until I was outside my sister's house.



It was 105 degrees outside (not hyperbole), so the cupcakes immediately started to melt.


My nephew, marking the cupcakes as his. He was excited and jumping up and down, so every picture I took ended up blurry. You can sort of tell that he's wearing a Spiderman t-shirt in this picture.

Charlie was a little disappointed that the designs were not made out of candy (Aunty is not that good yet), but I think he still enjoyed the cupcakes. I made a Lucha Libre mask cupcake for Achilles - I'll try to remember to upload a picture tonight.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Love,
Jane

I want those cupcakes. I wish I was cute and could demand cupcakes from my aunt. That would rock.
