Consider having these ‘twisted’ delights to add that creepy feel to your home for Halloween.
Forget trick or treat; this year, why not plan a fun Halloween party with your best friends? For dessert, ditch the candy and go for a homemade ‘Spooky Spiderweb’ cake that you and your girls can whip up together. They are fun to bake and pretty easy too! Just frost your cake as you would normally and go crazy with icing or even better, melted marshmallows (for that extra web-like effect).
The concept was first developed by blogger Carrie Sellman from The Cake Blog. Her version is elegantly frosted with a creepy twist!
#TBT to the original Marshmallow Spiderweb Cake, circa 2012! Melted marshmallow might be a hot mess… but it makes a sticky-spooky spiderweb. This little project is super fun and we love seeing so many friends making Marshmallow Spiderweb Cakes of their own! It was featured on the cover of @countrylivingmag in 2013 and this year, @foodnetwork magazine has a black and orange version on their cover. Lots of love for this project! Thank You! Thank You!! ❤️❤️ Find the original tutorial in our Halloween Gallery! thecakeblog.com/halloween-cake-gallery
