I would pipe it with black Candy Melts and then place it where you want. You could brush it with luster dust to add some spidery shimmer. Make extra so if one breaks you'll be all set.

What about using circles of black piping gel and drag a toothpick through it.

Kathy,that is a brilliant idea..I would have never thought of that!
I have attched a pic of one of my cakes..I used melted isomalt to make random threads.It's not perfect but looked neat I think.
I really like Kathy's idea of candy melts,that way you can control thickness of the strings.

Another one I have seen is to use cotton candy. Just "shred" it to thickness and length and it looks amazingly real!!!! It is all edible of course too!
