I saw the cutest cakeball spiders in the gallery one day and now I can't find them! I've searched forever! Can someone tell me how they made the little leggies and how they stuck to the cake ball? Maybe a picture? I want to bring them to a Halloween party because I have a ton of cake leftover from my sons b-day last weekend.

Thanks!

This sounds like something I would want to know, too! I hope it's not black shoestring licorice, as I can't find a single store in the city who carries the stuff. I'd have to get it online in huge quantities! (But this sounds so cute, I might have no choice!)

I've been looking for black shoestring licorice for a very long time, too. I used to see it all over, but now, NOWHERE. There's a drugstore nearby, and they're pretty good about ordering unusual things from their suppliers. Guess I'll ask them to order it. (They ordered Bit'o Honey candy for me a few weeks ago because I couldn't find it anywhere and my aunt wanted it.) Maybe a drug or variety store near you can do the same.

I just saw Bit'o Honey candy bags at my local Dollar Tree! I was surprised!

I found black shoestring licorice at my local Central Market (like Whole Foods). I found it in the candy section. It is german I believe and it comes in little spirals that you just unroll. I know it is off the subject but I was very surprise to find it because I had been looking for it for sometime.

Whole foods is a great idea. Does anyone think I could do it in Royal icing somehow and stick them on there? Does anyone have the picture of these guys? I KNOW I saw them here!

You could roll black fondant and shape it and let it dry. I had to use black pipe cleaners for ladybug legs when my originals didn't work out. THat was gumpaste so it didn't matter that they weren't edible.
