Spider Cake!

Spider Cake

For this cake you'll need:
1) Chocolate cake mix
2) Two cans of chocolate frosting
3) Black icing color
4) 9" cake pans
5) Candy eyes or doll eyes, decorative paper for the legs, double-sided tap
6) White pedestal cake stand

Bake the Cake and Prep the Platter

Bake cake in two 9" cake pans as directed.  While the cake is baking, cut 8--- 10-1/2" x 1-1/4 " strips of decorative paper (black with polka dots is shown above) for the spider's legs.  Fold the strips in half. Using double-sided tape, attach the ends to the cake stand. Fold the legs toward the middle of the cake stand to give them height.

First Layer

Place first layer of cake on the cake stand with the flat side down.

Make Black Frosting

Add small amounts of black icing color to the frosting until desired color.  Then, spread a layer of frosting on the first layer of cake.

Add the Second Layer

Place the second layer of cake on top of the iced layer, with the flat side down.

Frost the Entire Cake

Cover the entire cake with the black chocolate frosting.  Add candy eyes or you doll eyes from the craft store can also be used.
