A Spider-Man Birthday

One of my favorites of all the cakes I've made, Mike's Spider-Man strawberry-topped birthday cheesecake yesterday turned out exactly the way I'd imagined it.    
The eyes were melted white chocolate chips outlined with food coloring gel.  The little cake topper was a silly find for Mike from my mom years ago.  
A trip to Target had replenished my stash of Spider-Man gift wrap, and Stuffed even roused himself from his nap on the floor in time for pictures. 
'A loving start to "37" for Mr. Mike, leftover cheesecake for dessert tonight, and a sweet way to wrap up this July.
