I made this Spiderman cake for a little guy’s 6th birthday!
I was experimenting with the cake flavor (by request) and came up with a cake that was super delicious (exactly what I was going for) but looked unappetizingly awful.
The birthday boys asked for mint chocolate cake. I asked for clarification...a chocolate cake with mint flavor (like these Candy Cane Cupcakes or this Mint Chocolate Cake) or a mint cake with chocolate (think mint chocolate chip ice cream, recipes here and here). It was a good thing I clarified, because he wanted the latter.
As I mentioned above, I hit the mark flavorwise, but the looks! I thought it looked like a murky swamp, Spud said it reminded him of diarrhea, and the birthday boy's mom said she thought it looked moldy.
Yep, we're going to call it a hard fail and go back to the drawing board on this one. If you’re looking for a mint chocolate cake, click above to one of the chocolatey ones I shared - you won’t be disappointed!
