Country Living Fair, Part Three

Sticky, sweet and very scary! Country Living magazine's Senior Food Editor, Cheryl Slocum, hosted a wonderful "Autumn Treats" cake decorating demonstration at the Country Living Fair. My favorite was this spider web cake - complete with black raspberry/black licorice spiders! The recipe for the cake & glaze can be found in the October 2008 issue of Country Living magazine and on their website here. The cake batter is delicious and the "spider web" technique surprisingly easy. A perfect snack for an October meeting of the Girl Scouts - show them that a memorable dessert doesn't have to be difficult. Each girl could flat frost her own cupcake, squeeze a swirl of white frosting on top and then drag a toothpick through the swirl. Build a little spider and suddenly, it's snack time. Oh what tangled webs we weave...
