Rated 4 out of 5 by Tracey61 from I did this cake for a Halloween golf tournament and it was "centerpiece" of the party afterwards. I assembled the spider on top of a full sheet cake which was my wedding cake recipe. I used the buttercream icing to decorate the bottom cake which i mad look like a spider web. I used the chocolate buttercream icing to cover the body of the spider which was a fudge cake baked in one half of a sports ball pan. Then came back with the green and black tinted buttercream icing to add the final touches. I created the head and face out of tinted fondant. The only trouble I had was the legs staying put, but after cutting them a little shorter and pushing them into the body more, the finished product was awesome. Everyone just loved the way it looked and tasted. I would certainly do this cake again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mr-cakes from did this cake a couple years ago,its a little tricky to do put doable and looks realy good.i found that i had to use wooden scewers in the l legs to keep them from sagiging to much.I also made two cake boards one larger then the other,one the same size of the cake and the other a bit larger put a block between the two so it looks like the spider is realy waking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by decorator in training from I made this cake for my nephew's birthday a few years ago. I have very little experience decorating cakes and I found it easy and fun to make. I even got creative and copied the decorating pattern onto cup cakes and made baby spiders. My nephew loved the cake and my family was impressed.
