Spider Cake

spidercake.jpgMike saw the idea for a spider cake in a Family Fun magazine and immediately wanted us to make one for Halloween. I’ve learned my lesson about actually baking cake, so we figured we’d buy one premade and then assemble it. That turned out to be harder than we previously thought. They had no plain black cakes at Safeway and the cake I thought to buy at Costco was too high to make it look like a spider. Finally Mike found this semi-frosted, plain chocolate bundt cake at Albertson’s and that’s what we used.
He used licorice for the legs, white dot candies for the eyes and a pink one for the nose. He decided to skip the mouth. We were all pleased with the results and served the cake with ice cream.
