Oreo Spider Cake

White cake with spiderweb decorations on a white cake stand

Today I made a cake.

From a box mix.

Yeah, that’s right..a box mix.

And I frosted it.

Then I stuck Oreos to the sides.

You can do it too.

Here’s how…

Bake your cake and using some food coloring turn it orange.  It’s Halloween in a month, after all.

Bake it up like the box says…or if you’re not as lazy as me, I am sure you could bake it from scratch.  I just happen to like boxed cake.

I used a cute little mini cake pan that I just got.  It was a 4 inch pan.  I tried to be all creative with the camera and make the cake appear larger, but I am not a camera ninja…so it just looked like I baked a small cake.

I used some chocolate frosting for the filling…

And then made  buttercream and frosted the whole cake.

With some of my leftover chocolate frosting I piped on the spider web.  I used a piping bag and a #4 decorating tip. You could certainly use a Ziplock bag and snip off the corner.  Whatever is easiest for you.

I extended the “web” down the side of the cake and used some mini Oreo cookies for the spiders.

With some leftover frosting I quickly gave the spiders some little eyes.

Then we ate it. We all had mini slices.  I felt like a giant.

Hope you’re having a great week!

    On another note, I for one use box mixes ALL and I mean ALL the time…I just add in some extra stuff to give it a bit more kick and people swoon all over…..I don’t tell them it’s a box mix and take all the credit……..I’m evil like that…lol πŸ™‚
