To make these Spider-Man cupcakes, I applied quite a few shortcuts. I bought ready-mixed cupcake mixture, vanilla icing, white and black coloured icing pens from the supermarket. Also not forgetting fresh strawberries. The bigger the better but the stock in the supermarket were quite small.
After baking the cupcakes, I left them to cool before I put on the icing. I rolled out the white icing and then used a small cookie cutter to cut out the eyes. They are not brilliant but I tried! I dipped them in a tiny amount of water to make it stick to the strawberries. Then I used the black colour icing pen to draw around it. I was quite rubbish at this and the icing ran slightly.
After the strawberries are decorated, place them on top of the cupcake and this is how they look. They are not the best Spider-Man cupcakes but they are good enough for my son!
