1 box (18.5 ounces) chocolate cake mix, batter prepared according to package
1 cup mini marshmallows
1 container (16 ounces) white frosting
4 drops red food color
4 drops yellow food color
2 black jelly beans
1 tube black decorating gel or 1 string black licorice
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Coat two 8-inch cake pans with nonstick cooking
spray. Pour the cake batter into the pans and bake for 28 to 30 minutes, or
until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. While still warm,
invert one cake onto a serving platter. Top with the mini marshmallows and
place the second cake layer right side up over the marshmallows. Let sit for 5
minutes for the marshmallows to melt, then chill until firm. In a small bowl,
mix together 1 1/4 cups white frosting with the red and yellow food colors
until the frosting is orange. Frost the top and sides of the cake. Place the
remaining white frosting into a resealable plastic storage bag. Cut a very
small tip off the corner of the bag and pipe a spiderweb design over the top
of the cake. Place a black jelly bean on the spiderweb on the cake and draw
legs with the black gel or form them with licorice to look like a spider.
Repeat with the remaining jelly bean and gel to form a second spider.
