Hi everyone! 

I have a cake coming up for Halloween and the client wants spiders webs on it. I saw a thread once that says you can make something called gummy spider webs, but I can't seem to find the recipe. The webs on the cake look like they're slightly wrapped round it. I'm not sure how to imitate it!

Thanks in advance <3

Don't know about gummy webs, but you can by a container of Claire Bowman Cake lace in's already premixed and ready to use....and pipe them free hand from a  pastry bag.  Once dry they are flexible for months and you can bend and shape them any way you like.  I actually have a spider web lace mat and use it often to make webs for super hero inspired caked.

I'll have to try some as I can't seem to find anything that would be flexible enough for what I want :/

Thanks a bunch for your help!

The lace mix is great...when dry its like fabric.  You can shape it, twist it, tie bows with it, etc., yet it's completely edible!  Also, if you want to make a shape that permanent you just heat the finished it in the oven for a while to set it.  It's amazing stuff!

The gummy spider web sounded familiar - I was researching them a while ago.

Did a search, then switched to Recipes.  Hope it's what you were looking for.

DECOgel is prefect for the spiderwebs.  Decorate the cake has the spider web mold.  Just heat the Icing Imagse DECOgel for 30 seconds in the microwave and just pour it right it to the mold.  Let it set for 20 minutes and it is ready to go. In a hurry to let it set, just pop it in the freezer it will cut the time in half! The web will be flexible and will stretch.  DECOgel from Icing Images  and   Spider Web Mold From Decorate the Cake
