  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. Pour batter into two 10 inch round sprayed and lined pans and bake for 50 to 55 minutes.
  6. Cool completely and level the top of the cakes.
  7. Cut each cake in half horizontally so that there are 4 layers of cake. Spread buttercream frosting between each layer and a dam of frosting to hold in the cherry filling (PICTURE at 2:38).

Time to decorate!

  1. Use an offset spatula to frost the entire cake with red Swiss buttercream.
  2. Pipe a spider web on the top and sides of the cake with black royal icing (PICTURE at 4:47).
  3. Print the Spiderman Logo template onto cardstock and then use an X-acto knife to cut around the outline of the logo.

  5. Gently place the fondant logo onto the top of the cake, in the center of the spider web.
