So I searched Pinterest for ideas and I found this amazing marshmallow cobweb cake here on The Cake Blog.
I took the cobweb idea and I did this....
I made a pumpkin cake and covered it in a purple buttercream. Then I piped on the orange letters.
I outlined the letters in melted chocolate and I piped an orange swirl along the bottom of the cake.
I also made some spiders with the melted chocolate. I just piped them onto some parchment paper and put them in the fridge to harden.....and I didn't take any photos of them.
Then I left the cake in the fridge overnight to let the buttercream crust.
The spider web was pretty easy to make. Just melt a cup of marshmallows in the microwave for 30 seconds and then stir them up really well. Use your fingers to just stretch the goop across the cake all different ways.
It really looks like a cobweb!
