A Little Boy's Big Party!

Oh for the love of a little boy ...
Spiderman, Spiderman, Spiderman. That name comes out of my little guy's mouth about 562 times a day!!! As much as I loathe most licensed characters, naturally, when my baby turned 3 this week I had to produce! First the Superhero cake:I simply searched Google's Images for "Spiderman cake" and chose one I thought I could do with my limited cake decorating skills. It's a 2-layer red velvet cake with red-tinted frosting for Spidey's mask, white eyes and "brownie" piped frosting for his webs. The cupcakes were mini-versions of the same:On to the party favors. Bottles of bubbles and treat bags on a custom Spiderman 3 tray:I love all my customizable trays!! I used them in my book, Inspirational Home, and worked with DaySpring on one you can get for yourself. The back comes off, so you can design all sorts of fun inserts for any special occasion or season or decor. You scrapbookers should be all over that!! I modified an image from the 3rd Spiderman movie, to add a Happy Birthday message:
Since there are 1.2 million other moms of little Spidey-wanna-bes out there, Spiderman junk abounds! Spiderman mini frisbees, fruit snacks & suckers filled the little favor bags:
I added a "C" tag to the treat bags for my little Superhero - enhanced, of course, with yet another COOL picture of Spidey himself!:
Lastly, Spidey thanked all his little fans for celebrating with him!!And, as always, thank YOU for visiting!

Such a cute cake and treats! My son had a spiderman party many years ago. All I could find then was a special cake pan and matching underwear in the spiderman theme. Oh, if I'd only had the internet and this site back then!

People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

I just ordered your tray, which is on sale now. Maybe I could have gotten an additional 15 percent discount by going through the Nesting Place blog, but I didn't think of it in time. I'm looking forward to getting my new tray. : )
