Growing up we had a cassette tape, yes a cassette tape! Do people still know what that is? Anyway, we had one when we were kids that played the Spider-Man theme song, and we played that thing over and over and over again. That and Man! I Fee Like a Woman by Shania Twain, but we’re talking about Spider-Man here! And he has been our favorite superhero ever since! So, obviously, we were excited when we heard about the new movie coming out and we’ve been counting down the days ever since!
Friday, the minute we got out of work, we headed to the movie theaters to watch it (Amazing, by the way!). We are convinced that it’s the best Spider-Man movie yet and you can debate us all you want, but we won’t budge on that fact. Tom Holland plays the perfect Spider-Man and we’re already counting down the days until the next time we see our friendly neighborhood Spidey. What’s not to love about an adorable nerd who is also a superhero? Let us know what you thought, we’d love to hear from ya’ll! And if you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for? Go see it now, but right after you make these cookies…
To celebrate the new movie, and our love for all things Spider-Man, we thought we’d make some Spider-Man themed sugar cookies!
Aren’t they so cute?! They’re like the little webs he shoots! Well, his are white technically, but we thought black looked the best (it also matches his suit)! We bought red fondant and black icing for this. We can’t seem to ever be able to get our reds and blacks dark enough, so if you have any tips, let us know, we’d love the help! You can also use red buttercream instead if your not a huge fan of fondant. However, do note that the fondant looks smoother and in our opinion, better than the buttercream.
What You’ll Need:
24 round sugar cookies, baked and cooled
Black buttercream icing
#3 frosting tip
How To Decorate:
- Roll out the fondant to about an 1/8 in thick. Using the same cookie cutter that you cut your cookies out with, cut out 24 circles of fondant.
- Apply a little bit of black frosting to the top of a cookie, this will help the fondant to stick. Place a fondant circle onto the cookie. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
- Once all the cookies have fondant, it’s time to decorate! Using the black frosting fitted with the number 3 tip, quarter the cookie with black frosting. From there, add 2 more lines to “cut” the cookie into eighths, like a pie.
- Now, drape a line between each “wheel” of the cookie. One towards the top of the cookie and one towards the middle. Do this between each little “wheel” and it’ll look like a spider web!
