Spidey Gets Lit
That right, but before spiderman was transported to Aliso Viejo, he got dusted. I figured since spidey's outfit/costume/uniform or whatever you want to call it, is made of spandex or some such type of material, it should have a little shine. So I had purchased Royal Blue and Christmas Red Luster dust (This was why a good Crusting ButterCream was so important).
So, super soft paintbrush in hand, a little luster dust was applied to the stars of the uniform.... (it doesn't really show up in the pictures at all, but I tried, in 2 different lighting conditions)
I should reveal that I had attempted to make Spiderwebs using a recipe that ddpie posted for me on the BakeSpace Forum....
It was a recipe for Gummi Bears, so I tried to reduce the un-flavored gelatin, hoping that would make it more flexible. But it was an exercise in folly... For with less gelatin, it was so runny that it was pooling as soon as it came out of the squeeze bottle... I tried waiting a little longer, but as it cooled, it just became clumpy & gloppy...
So I gave up and simply ate the mistakes... (The mistakes DID taste good; just like a gummi bear; which I will have to remember for the future)
At this point, sans webbing, our hero was transported to Aliso Viejo, and lit...
Mmmm Good Cake!!!!
And thus ends the tale of our hero....
I know, kind of anti-Climatic wasn't it...??
