I started this spider cake by baking yellow cake in two Pyrex bowls ( guess on time, just have to pay attention). You can make from scratch or you can just use box cake mix. Let cool completely. I did the cake the night before.
Then I made the Wilton frosting recipe and split it in half. I dyed half blue and the other half green. I piped the frosting and used two different tips. The eyes are made from gummy candy and legs are chocolate licorice.
It was my first cake and a huge hit! Good luck!
