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!

  5. TOO CUTE!!!! This cake is wonderful. Did the oreos stick fora long enough period of time or were they sliding down pretty quick. I only ask because I would love to make this cake & wonder how early I could attach the oreos.

  6. Oh Shelly I love this cake! It’s so cute!!! Can I please ask how long you baked it? I have a couple of 4-inch pans that I’ve been wanting to use but I’m afraid of overbaking! I’m going to make this for my kids…thanks so much!

    Those little hanging spiders are so cute! And I love that it’s orange on the inside.
