The Kids Went Crazy Over this Cake!



I can't believe how excited my grandson got!


He loves the spooky spider cartoons, so when he saw this cake, he kept saying WOW!


He is only 3 but this sure impressed him and he ate it up in a New York Minute!

Yes it takes a little time



This does take a little time to create, but building cakes and frosting also hides a multitude of any mistakes, that's what I love about building usual cakes.


Halloween is a fun time to try something special to be spooky but delicious.

Not Expensive At All



Almost everything I bought came from an inexpensive dollar store.


The kids absolutely went nuts over this chocolate treat and was the perfect centerpiece on the Halloween food table!


I am not a fan of spiders at all but this one was fun to slice into!

Halloween Spider Cake

instructions:

Halloween Spider Cake 

1 chocolate cake mix prepared to package instructions
1 large can of whipped chocolate frosting
candy eyes
thick stick twisted pretzels short size
crushed chocolate cookies in the food processor
1 small 6 inch oven proof glass bowl  greased
1  8 inch round cake pan greased
1 whole chocolate cookie for the head
toothpick to hold the cookie into the cake

Mix cake mix to packaged instructions. Pour into heavily greased bowl half way and the rest into the greased 8 inch cake pan. Bake until middle springs back. 

Invert  cakes on cookie sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper. Cool.

Stack the 6 inch cake onto the 8 inch cake. Lightly frost with whipped chocolate canned frosting. Then add the crushed chocolate cookie crumbs all over it evenly. 

Frost the cookie with the frosting,  attach to the cake as shown using a toothpick to hold and insert in the front. Attach the eyes using the frosting as the glue. Dip each pretzel stick into the frosting, roll in cookie crumbs evenly.

Insert the first one as shown, then the next one as a triangle effect, the last down straight to make each leg attaching with frosting and adding more crushed chocolate cookie crumbs to cover. 

Two in the front two in the back, you should have 3 pretzel sticks for one leg. 

Break two tiny pieces of pretzels stick and dip into the frosting for the feelers under the cookie. 


If course if you are really creative you can pipe some white web frosting on the bottom cake or just leave it plain.
