He Wanted a Spider Cake

//

Have I ever mentioned how much I loathe spiders? Abhor. Revile. They strike terror into the very core of my being.

“Guess what Mom!? I’m having a spider cake for my birthday!”

Oh yes, he just did.

For this terrifying treat, I used a strawberry cake mix.

Not sure why he wanted the innards to be pink?

I baked two 9″ rounds and then stacked and roughly trimmed into a kind of dome shape.

Did I mention that I was sick and bordering on a DaQuil overdose?

That knowledge suddenly makes this impressive, doesn’t it?

Mix up any random buttercream recipe and color to suit.

He wanted orange and black. I couldn’t find black and didn’t have time to order from Wilton’s, so I made some nasty green-gray-brown stuff that he totally dug.

For the eyes I used my kitchen scissors and snipped the ends off a large marshmallow.

Genius. OK, maybe the medicine was making me easy to impress.

Use a bit of frosting on the sheet to anchor black licorice “legs” and viola!

Kids don’t judge.

    What a good mother your are, Rachel!!! The cake is adorable, and you’ve made memories, sick or not!

    (I’m typing this in a bedroom next door to my grown daughter’s “spider” room…she breeds/grows/sells an assortment of weirdees–tarantulas (some as big as my hand–including fingers 8^O), scorpions and roaches. I cannot allow myself to think about it!) Yes, what we do for our kids.

    Once I made a cake that looked like a rock, with dirt and worms and grass all around it. I also let them pick their birthday cake and sometimes it shows off their weirdness!
