2.We used the FMM Alphabet & Number Cutters & Renshaw’s Dahlia Black Flower & Modelling paste to create the message around the side of the cake. Dust your work surface with the cornflour pouch before rolling the icing out to about 1mm, cut a long strip and leave for a couple of minutes so that the icing begins to harden a little. Cut out the letters by pressing the plastic strip down firmly then tap on your work surface to release each letter. Attach to your cake with a little edible glue. You can use sugarpaste but roll out and leave for about 5 minutes before cutting the letters out.

3.Pop a writing tube into your piping bag, fill with royal icing and pipe the spider’s web onto the black icing.

4.You can mould your own spiders or use a mould, we used the PME Halloween Chocolate Mould. Dust with the cornflour pouch and push a little black sugarpaste into the spider mould. Cut any excess icing off with a palette knife, turn the mould over and tap on your worktop to release. To finish, add a couple of icing eyes and attach the spiders to your cake. Alternatively, melt some black candy buttons and pour into the mould, leave to set and turn out.

Handy Hint

To get rid of white marks on your black icing from the cornflour, brush over first with a soft brush then spray lightly with PME Glaze spray.
