Giant Spider Cake Topper



Materials for Spider Cake:

(We decorated an 8 inch cake, frosted in our fluffy vanilla buttercream frosting)

Two Rice Cereal Treats (22 g. size)
Fondant (we used pre-colored black, and also tinted white fondant with Orange coloring)
Tylose Powder (optional- we kneaded a little into our fondant so that it would set up more quickly)
Coloring Gels- Americolor Orange, Black, Electric Green
Lollipop Sticks for spider legs- we used 6" sticks. (Seven sticks total-3 for each side and the last stick is split in half to create the front two legs)

Candy Corn for the top -optional - it was a last minute addition ;0)

Piping Gel
Black Sugar Pearls

fondant ribbon cutter
Red Sugar Pearls/Sprinkles for eyes (You could use fondant or red buttercream also)

  1. That is just the cutest cake!!!! I will have to try to make it for my next Halloween party. By the way, I have that exact Halloween cake stand that is sitting on your counter behind you in the final part of the video.....

  2. Thanks ladies!! @MsGF, yes only pretend spiders are acceptable, preferably sugar ones! ;0) -

    @gracie- So funny, I love that one! We almost used it but it wasn't quite the right match for the orange border on my cake. It's on standby for our next Halloween cake ;0)
