Hi everyone! This is my first post here! =)
I tried to search the site w/o luck.
I'm a beginner at cake decorating (disclaimer - lol!) - I'm actually in the first Wilton class right now.
Anyways, I am making a 3D spider cake for an event this weekend. I made the head and body out of stainless steel mixing bowls and they came out great. I plan to get pipe cleaners to bend for legs and use a simple star tip to decorate w/ black frosting. But I have NO idea what to do for eyes on the spider. I don't just want to use a plain ol' white circle, but I just can't figure out what to do. Any suggestions? TIA!
I guess I'd probably make big round black eyes that round out a bit...and then put a tiny white speck of fondant for a "glint" on each one, up towards the top of each eyeball....?
Hey there! I would suggest using some type of round candy...like M&M's....depending on the size of your spider. I would use red M&M's and paint a black circle in the center. I would put them in place and then paint them. Good luck!
Welcome to Cake Central!
I think this lady does awesome eyes. I PMed her and she said she just cuts out a piece of fondant and paints the eyes on it. You can paint with icing coloring, mixed with either vodka or lemon extract.
Cinnamon imperials (aka red hots).
Thank you! =)
