What we're eating - Spider Cake

I made this cute spider cake for Anna's 5th birthday/Halloween party. It turned out pretty cute.

I cooked half of the cake batter in a bowl for the body. I broke pretzel rods in half and dipped each end in melted chocolate and then formed a wide V to make the legs, let them set up in the fridge on some wax paper. I used the Wilton tip #234 to make the furry body and knees. I used candy for the eyes and cut up mini marshmallows for the fangs. Then I used some black gel icing to decorate the plate like a web.

It was a big hit for our spider themed party!
