Perhaps it is a trend now that kids don’t only get a cake on their birthday but they are also treated to their favourite character(s) made in agar-agar (a.k.a jelly).  Yes… at least that was what both my god-daughter and god-son got this year for their respective birthdays… a HUGE cake plus a custom-made visual treat from their mum, who always go to great lengths to delight them on such special occasions.  The kids simply loved them and even the adults were intrigued.    
Here is the Spidey:
