This Halloween party hocus pocus all begins with an OREO Cake from I Love Ice Cream Cakes which you can find at the grocery store! The OREO ice cream cake is full of creamy vanilla ice cream blended with OREO cookie pieces, topped with whipped icing and a large OREO cookie wafer and OREO cookie pieces. Here is what you will need to transform your delish cake into something cute and festive:

That is my kind of gig. With cake selections including Carvel®, OREO®, REESE’S and HEATH, there is more than enough reason to celebrate any day!

Pretty pink and orange Halloween cake.

Start out by adding some stabilized pink whipped cream around the entire cake. You only need about ½ cup. Use a star tip to pipe it on. I used some confectioner's sugar to stabilize mine You can also use regular whipped cream as is, it just might not stay as well shaped.

Next, use a black icing writer or black Sparkle gel to make eight cute little spider legs surrounding the large OREO cookie center. I made them bend by adding an angle but you can keep them straight if you want to keep it super simple.

Voila! We already have a spider cake. That could really not get any easier!

For the final touches, add two small candy eyes, a candy bow to the spider and then add pretty candies and sprinkles around the cake to seal the deal.

Make sure to store your finished spider cake back into the original box and store in the freezer for at least an hour before serving. Easy, peasy!
