Update (08.11.12): This Halloween like the last one, was at my friend’s place but this time with a larger guest list (She has written about it here). She asked me couple of days before the party if I could prepare something sweet for the event. I was quite excited by her request. I browsed through lot of ideas for Halloween, and decided on doing a cake and decorate it to befit the Halloween theme. I prefered to make something that looks cute and edible (didn’t want gross out anyone) and of course a decoration I can manage. I am just learning to decorate cakes, but I must say S did a beautiful job icing this one. The spiders I prepared a day before and left it in the freezer until ready to use. I struggled a bit piping the spiders, except for a few broken limbs they looked good to go.
The cake is an all time favourite of mine Red velvet cake with a cream cheese frosting. The recipe for the cake is adapted from a cupcake recipe.
