Spooky Spider Cake

I made this cake today! It's a big deal because this is the first time I have ever spent so much time on a cake. This was also the first time I ever experimented with gum paste. I never even knew for sure what it was until this morning (it's the stuff used to make decorations). You can buy it premade at Michael's, which is what I did today.

For the spider, I added black icing color to the gum paste. Then shaped the body and legs separately. The icing on the cake helps to keep the pieces in place.

The web is white sparkly decorating gel from a tube.
