    Beside the recipe, the spider web is so cute. I tried to make this decoration with baked cheesecake but I always get cracks on baked cheesecake so it did not work out. I put plastic spiders on cake as decoration. Kids love this cute cake.  -  12 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
