We’re excited to share a fun and simple Halloween spider cake design with you in this free cake decorating video!
This giant spider cake topper is SO easy to make, and is great for adding a little drama to Halloween cakes. I love how quickly it all comes together, and the design options are endless!
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)
Black Sugar Pearls
fondant ribbon cutter
Red Sugar Pearls/Sprinkles for eyes (You could use fondant or red buttercream also)
