Spiderman... well sorta

Tomorrow is Tot's birthday... We had a party yesterday for him. That was the big reason for pulling out the mixer and making a cake. Since I will be putting out pictures of Tot tomorrow, I am putting out pictures of the cake today.

It was hilarious. I really should not decorate a cake at 11pm. I'm a morning person... not a night person. And a warning to those who don't decorate cakes often... they lie about the black coloring. It makes it gray, not black. Buy at least 3 or 4 tubes of that stuff to get something close to black. I had one tube and used blue and red to try and 'darken' it up. Ahhhhh... Here is the finished product:

And along with the cupcakes... here it is getting ready to be lit:

At least it was edible... though funny looking. ;-) Maybe by the time Tot gets to be 7 or 8 or 18... I might be able to decorate. hahahaha.
