Spoooky Spiderweb Cake…Yum!

Welcome to Rudan Thursdays where we talk about…things! Anything from books and movies, to blog posts and authors, to food and drink.

Halloween will be here before you know it. Here’s an idea for a spooky treat!

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 Package (18.25oz) White Cake Mix

1 Can (16oz) Vanilla Frosting

1 Tube (.68oz) Black Decorating Gel

2-3 Black Licorice Laces

4 Large Black Gumdrops

Red Food Coloring

Yellow Food Coloring

Here’s how to make it:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Grease and flour a 13x9in baking pan.

Prepare cake mix according to package directions.

Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake cake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean – about 28-38 minutes.

Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.

  • Set aside ½ teaspoon vanilla frosting.

Place remaining frosting in a medium bowl.

Add red and yellow food coloring, a few drops at a time (start with about ¼ teaspoon each), until desired orange color is reached.

Frost cake with orange frosting.

Pipe spiderweb, using black decorating gel, on top of cake.

  • Cut eight 1 ½in pieces of licorice lace for each spider.

Make 4 holes with a wooden skewer on each side of each gumdrop.

Insert 4 pieces of licorice into each side of gumdrops for legs.

Make eyes with small dots of reserved vanilla frosting using a toothpick.

Add dots of black get for centers of eyes.

Place spiders on cake…voila!

Wanna do cupcakes instead? No problem! Simply prepare the cake mix according to package directions for cupcakes. Pipe a tiny web on top of each cupcake and add one spider. A spookalicious treat for the kiddies!

Taitneamh…enjoy!
