Scary Spider Chocolate Cake

Posted on October 28, 2010


A recent party in the parlour led to the creation of this spider cake…

I decided to host a halloween themed dinner for some friends with a special menu…

In every day language, this was pea soup, followed by beetroot risotto and chocolate cake, but it doesn’t quite have the same effect!

Anyway, I wanted to play around with the chocolate cake a little and, having followed Martha Stewart’s recipe, I decided to add a web made from white icing and a few plastic spiders to add to the effect.

The cake was delicious, but a little dry for my taste. So I might try Martha’s Devil’s Food Cake next, which on reflection was a more appropriate recipe for the occasion!
