Spider Cake
Serving Size: varies
Notes:For this cake we made two nine inch rounds, and decorated some cupcakes into spiders.

1 (18 oz.) pkg. chocolate cake mix for the cake

1 (18 oz.) pkg. chocolate cake mix for the cup cakes.

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or margarine

Chocolate Frosting

2/3 C. Cocoa

3 C. powdered sugar

1/3 C. milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tube of decorator white frosting

black pipe cleaners for cup cakes

a few chocolate coated candies for cup cakes

Preparation:Prepare one chocolate cake mix as directed but use two 9 inch pans for the cake. When the cakes cool, frost with chocolate frosting. Decorate with the white frosing by painting on a spiderweb shape.

You can decorate cupcakes into spiders by frosting them with chocolate frosting, and cutting pipe cleaners into fourths, and adding four legs to each side. Add the eyes by placing two candies between the two sets of legs.

I like the saying, if the broom fits, ride it. It's so cold here, I hope my broom is heated and has a windshield!
