SPIDER HALLOWEEN ICE CREAM CAKE
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:
- OREO Ice Cream Cake
- Orange and Pink Candies
- Stabilized Whipped Cream, tinted Pink
- Black Icing Writer
- Candy Bow
- Halloween Sprinkles
If you haven’t tried their delicious cakes yet, look for them at your local grocery store in the freezer or bakery section and you can even order online now! Whoo hoo. It can be party time, anytime. 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! See where you can find your favorites now with their product locator. I purchased my cake at my local Publix in the bakery’s freezer section. Now, let’s make this fun Halloween cake creation!
Start out by adding some stabilized pink whipped cream around the entire cake. You only need about 1/2 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.
Already looking extra pretty for a Halloween theme party!
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.
My basic idea is super customizable, too. You can choose pretty much any color combo that you want here.
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!
Now your Halloween cake is ready to enjoy any day of the week or for your fun party! You can make this well in advance. That is always an amazing perk when relying on freezer items. It’s an easy double win if you ask me!
