Icky Black Widow's Web Cake
1 small box green gelatin
Blue food coloring
2 large green gum balls
Enough to fit in two 9" round cake pans.
Prepare cake and gelatin according to package directions.
Cut a smaller circle out of one cake and use it for the spider's head. Fill the hole left over with gelatin. Place the other layer on top and trim to shape.
To prepare Black Frosting:
In a mixing bowl, add blue food coloring to chocolate frosting until black in color.
Frost cake with the black frosting. Pipe a spider web on the body of the spider using white frosting. Cut the black licorice to the appropriate size and use as the spider's 8 legs; use the gum balls as the eyes.
When the cake is cut, it spurts icky green goop.
