Simple spider cake (version 2!)

This is what you end up with if you ask your almost 4 year old what kind of cake we should do for her Great Granny's 96th birthday, a spider cake of course!

This is the second spider cake I have made, last June I blogged about the cake I made my Dad for his birthday.
Last years spider cake

This years one is slightly more classy:)

I covered the cake in white fondant then piped a web over part of it. The kids made 2 spiders to go on the web and I used snapped cocktail sticks for the legs. Very simple!

My Granny has very poor sight but the indoor firework on the cake gave her a surprise (no we were not trying to give her a heart attack...!).

My Dad's birthday was last week and again we made a spider cake, hopefully I will get away with something a bit different on my sister's cake in a few weeks!


  1. Now I'm not a fan of spiders usually, but these are very cute!

    Hope she enjoyed herself xx

  2. Another fabulous cake Alison! I'm going to have to try some cake spiders - they are so cool! Hope your Granny had a lovely birthday!
