RED VELVET MARSHMALLOW SPIDERWEB CAKE

This Red Velvet Marshmallow Spiderweb Cake is a classic red velvet cake, frosted with deep black chocolate buttercream, and covered with a spooky web of spiderwebs, made entirely from marshmallows! 
The spider on top is entirely edible, and is made from chocolate plastic, a mix of candy coating and corn syrup! The chocolate plastic needs to rest overnight before you can sculpt with it, so if you want to make the edible spider, you’ll want to give yourself enough time to make the plastic in advance. Store-bought fondant can be substituted if you desire.

INSTRUCTIONS

TO MAKE THE CANDY SPIDER:

  1. To make the chocolate plastic, melt the red candy coating in a medium bowl in the microwave, until melted and smooth. Add the light corn syrup, and stir it in—it will quickly become thicker, like a paste. Stir just until all of the coating is incorporated and it come together in a ball. Don’t over-mix, or the oil might start to separate. Less is more!
  2. Scrape the chocolate plastic out onto a sheet of plastic wrap, and wrap it tightly into a package. Let sit overnight.
  3. The next day, the chocolate plastic will be quite hard at first. Sprinkle your work station with powdered sugar, and knead it until it becomes soft and pliable.
