This cake was made for my kid's halloween party. I went with the spider so the Jehovah's Witnesses could still partake in it. I made this using my soccer ball Wilton pan (also used for the Hydrangea cake). It's proven to be quite the multi-tasker.
Everytime I make black frosting I always wonder why I started. I used a chocolate frosting recipe to begin with but it still took the entire jar of black coloring. It was really easy besides that. Cherry sours for the eyes, candy corn teeth and licorice legs. The kids were really impressed.
