The spiderweb cake stand @michaelsstores is making a come back! I just wanted to share a fun Halloween cake today. And I am, even though my light fell on it right before I did pictures 🤦🏼♀️ Hell, it adds character right? 😂 We gotta just roll with the punches over here sometimes. I’m just thankful this cake was just for us.
Despite the trouble, I love this spider cake so much! It was inspired by a cake I made last year in which I carved in scratch marks and lined them with silver leaf and made a sprinkle skeleton hand.
This time, I decided to bring out the web using @thesugarart silver diamond dust to give it a nice sparkle.
The spiders are made of cake balls and then I piped buttercream all over the bodies and for the legs. I added some sprinkles and some edible silver leaf (@slofoodgroup ) and striped one of the spider’s legs with more diamond dust. The cracks were made using aluminum foil shaped into a crack and stamped into the sides of the buttercream.
This is 4 6” layers of my NEW chocolate pumpkin pie cake with vanilla buttercream. Should I share the recipe? 🤔
