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.
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!

This is a great cake! I featured it on Fun Friday Finds today. I hope you can stop by and grab a featured button if you’d like.
Was just wondering… Did you use thw whole cookie or just half?
I did both, just to try to both ways. Either works 🙂
That cake is super fabulous! And will be added to my ever increasing list of things I want to make.
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 🙂
