Spiderweb Cake
 12 to 16 servings
 
 1 box (18.5 ounces) chocolate cake mix, batter prepared according to package
 directions
 1 cup mini marshmallows
 1 container (16 ounces) white frosting
 4 drops red food color
 4 drops yellow food color
 2 black jelly beans
 1 tube black decorating gel or 1 string black licorice
 
 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat two 8-inch cake pans with nonstick cooking
 spray. Pour the cake batter into the pans and bake for 28 to 30 minutes, or
 until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
 
 While still warm, invert one cake onto a serving platter. Top with the mini
 marshmallows and place the second cake layer right side up over the
 marshmallows. Let sit for 5 minutes for the marshmallows to melt, then chill
 until firm.
 
 In a small bowl, mix together 1-1/4 cups white frosting with the red and
 yellow food colors until the frosting is orange. Frost the top and sides of
 the cake.
 
 Place the remaining white frosting into a resealable plastic storage bag.
 Cut a very small tip off the corner of the bag and pipe a spiderweb design
 over the top of the cake.
 
 Place a black jelly bean on the spiderweb on the cake and draw legs with the
 black gel or form them with licorice to look like a spider. Repeat with the
 remaining jelly bean and gel to form a second spider.
