Caught in the Web

A very popular superhero, but the first time I have been asked to make him.  Working with the customer to find ideas that would appeal to her son, we starting with a selection of superheroes in one cake, established his actual favourite character and finally narrowed it down to this one in particular, I suggested this particular design including a graduated airbrushed night sky behind the buildings and some flexible icing material to make the free-hanging web.  I think this one definitely had the wow factor.

I was asked to revisit the theme for another customer just a month or two later.
