Spiderman Mask Tutorial

roll out red gumpaste (I always add quite a bit of tylose to make per 500g add 2 tsp so drys hard & quickly)

Dust the plastic mask with plenty of cornstarch

Lay rolled out gumpaste over the dusted mask & gently press into the contours

Cut around the edges using a very sharp blade, I also cut out the eyes but you can leave them in & paint black

Allow mask to dry on the plastic mask for a couple of days

Gently prize the giumpaste mask from the plastic one, gently from around the edges first…take your time it will release if it is dry

Using a thin brush & Americolour super black mixed with Vodka to paint on the web

I have just painted the black lines I didn’t add the white as in the mask

Fabulous idea!!! Loved your tutorial, thank you!


Thank you for this wonderful tutorial! Great job!! I am going to give this a try. Wish me luck with the painting part of the mask. My friends wants me to pipe webs all over the cake and then put the mask on top. Yikes with webs. If anyone can give me some instruction on that part, I sure would appreciate it! Happy caking and decorating to all! And Happy Memorial Day weekend!
