The great thing about this (other than of course that it IS cake) is that it's small enough to be gift size but not as tiny as a cupcake! To be honest, I didn't make this for Halloween but instead for a person who loves spiders but it would make the perfect Halloween gift or just another addition to a table full of sweet treats, after all isn't that the best part about Halloween? Hope you enjoy!
Step 1: How to Make It
His head and body is made from a vanilla butter cake, to make the head you will need 1 cupcake and the body one mini cake tin, its important to let it rise as this give it a nice rounded shape for his back, once you've stuck the two together, ice it up with chocolate frosting and sprinkles, then down the back a stripe of red icing. Then of course the legs, simply 'glue' two mint sticks together with a little melted chocolate and poke them in, then choc bits' eyes (with a dab of red fondant) and lastly I carved the pincers from squares of chocolate.
If you make this, post a photo in the comments,I would love to see it! Thank you for viewing!!
