Meriel Frandsen joined us today to share a spooky cake that is perfect for any Halloween occasion!
Black Marshmallow Web Cake
- 1 cake ready to decorate using American buttercream or Fondant to cover it, but a white color frosting is okay! (No Swiss Meringue Buttercream)
- 1 black bottle of Edible Art Paint
- A flat edge medium size paint brush
- Marshmallows any size, 2 cups
- Microwavable bowl
- Small bowl to hold paint
- Food safe gloves
- Cake decorations! Toys like spiders or ghost, candy, cookies, or frosting!
- If your cake is covered in Fondant, make sure it has dried. If your cake is covered in an American style buttercream frosting, chill it until the outside has formed a ‘crust’.
- Shake your bottle of black edible art paint until the contents are blended throughout. Pour a portion of the bottle into the bowl and dip your paint brush into the paint.
- Start painting the cake as you would any other surface. It shouldn’t require more than one coat.
- Put the cake back in the fridge or let sit until it has dried completely. This could take hours.
- When paint is dry to the touch, take out to apply the marshmallow web.
- Microwave the marshmallows for 30 seconds in the microwave, or melt on the stovetop.
- Stir until it is completely melted
- With food safe gloves on, pick a glob up and work between your fingers to create a web like effect and pull around the cake.
- Turn the cake and repeat until you’ve added enough ‘cobbwebs’.
- Add decorations and you’re finished!
