Spiderweb Cake

Spiderweb Cake

Linda Larsen
Spiderweb cake is an easy and fun recipe for Halloween. You can make the spiderweb on any size cake. Just draw the web using black decorator gel icing in any shape you want. It would be really cute on the corners of a large sheet cake!

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: Serves 8


  • One 9-inch cake layer, any flavor OR any size cake, baked and cooled
  • 1-2 tubs prepared vanilla frosting
  • 1 tube black decorator gel frosting
  • Candy Spider


Bake cake as directed and cool completely. Place on serving plate. Frost evenly on top and sides with the white frosting.

Hold the gel frosting like you would a pencil and draw concentric rings on the cake. Place the circles in the center of the cake or make several webs in the cake corners.

Use a toothpick to draw through the gel frosting, first from the center out to the edges, then from the edges into the center, alternating directions.

Place Candy Spider on the cake. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

Fun and fabulous!, Guest Cyn

I love the easy directions for making this cake. I made a two layer chocolate cake (from this site) and frosted it with two cans of white icing. Then added the spiderweb! I found candy spiders at a local boutique and used those. It was a huge hit at the party last year and I plan on making it again this year!
