I want to notify some point that I forgot to mention .If you would like the cake get light you add just on drop of red color. If you don’t want decorate with cream or fondant. take a knife and go forward and backward over the mixture before taking the cake to the oven,and design spider . And then bake in the oven. Or if you don’t want become 3 colors you can use 2 colors (plain and cocoa)then you have to divide the mixture into 2 equal part and scoop 3tablespoons of batter substitute 2 tablespoons of batter The photo of the cake is shown at the my cake photos on cakecentral.com
