Happy Birthday Spiderman

 The season finally of Cake Boss finally aired, so I can post these pictures now. I have to say, this cake had to be one of the funnest to work on. We had to put in extra hours to get all the characters done, but no one complained because we all wanted to do it. We even added some bonus characters that hadn't been asked for.

Kraven the Hunter, getting punched in the face.
Flail-Spidey on a string. He's gonna jump from a ledge and web-sling into action!

Venom! Oh, hey, and me back there... behind the blind guy.

A little blue sheen added to the skin to make him pop. (Mary Jane and Spidey making out in the background.)
Everybody's butts look so nice!

Mary Jane and Spiderman sharing a moment. I love how the whole idea of the cake was to tell a story. These two get placed on an actuator and rise up out of the mini subway and rubble. Seriously: The funnest cake ever.

Crouching Leopard, sparkly shoe

I thought this one turned our pretty cool. This leopard was about 10 inches long from tail to shoe. Sometimes... we get some really cool cake orders.

Fancy Nancy was complicated. There were so many details, she has about 5 dozen different outfits, CRAZY hair, and a giant head, but it turned out almost exactly how I wanted.

This is the most common type of order: a portrait piece, usually incorporating the customer's favorite thing, or something that represents them. We get photos of what they look like and what they're supposed to be wearing, and we sculpt them about 6 inches tall. I thought this one turned out especially nice.
