Halloween Spider Surprise Cake

Spook your family with this Surprise Spider Cake for Halloween!


  • 1 recipe, white cake see instructions below
  • 3-4 cups vanilla frosting
  • handful of spooky spiders


  • Bake your cake into 2 rounds (I used 8 inch rounds). After cooling, slice each cake round into two layers.
  • Stack three of your four layers and use a knife to carefully cut out a hole in the center (about 2 1/2 inches wide). Remove that cake portion leaving an open hole.
  • Separate your cake layers once again and frost between them.
  • Stack again, frosting between each layer.
  • Finish with the fully round (no hole in the middle) fourth layer.
  • Cover with frosting and decorate with extra spiders!
