  • To make the cobwebs on the face. Colour some royal icing with black food colouring and place in a piping bag. Use a small nozzle so you can icy thin lines. Find the center point on the cake and the ice cream lines across the mask from the center point to the outer edge of the cake and along the sides. Begin the cobwebs by icing a curved line between each section. Drive around the central point until you reach the starting point. Repeat the curved lines at the bottom points around the cake until the entire mask resembles a spider web.
  • Carefully position the eyes over the cobweb-covered face while the black icing is still wet.
  • Use the rest of the black royal icing to glaze any cobwebs on the cake stand. Leave enough space to write the name.
  • Choose a different colour Royal Icing to write the recipient's name and age if you prefer

Quick Tip

When it comes to making a fondant cake, there are a few things you should keep in mind! First, be sure to roll out your fondant on a surface that is both clean and dry. Otherwise, your fondant will likely stick to the surface and tear. Second, be sure to use a sharp knife when cutting your fondant, as a dull knife will also cause tearing. Finally, when applying your fondant to the cake, be sure to do so gently - too much pressure will cause the fondant to crack. With these tips in mind, you should be able to make a beautiful fondant cake that will impress your guests!
