This is my first video tutorial of ANYTHING so...be kind, they'll get better :-). I'm making a ham cake and couldn't find any tutorials on this so it may seem like a simple thing to instruct on but not all of us are born with "Cake Decorator's ESP" :-).
These links will take you to it, for some reason it would not download here.

This is a topper for a cake I'm doing this week. I had to post this because it tickled me just to look at it.
I'm a little behind in my posting here lately, been busting my tuckus since June every week training to get ready for my black belt test in June of next year! (I'm getting to old for this).
Hmm...exercise and cake, now THAT'S a match made in heaven LOL!
I'm starting a new line of specialty cakes for $75 and they come as you see them, this keeps the price down and here is one of them.
This was an Anniversary cake, love to bling!
This customer wanted a fall themed cake so this is what I came up with and she LOVED IT...and the cake :-).
This was my first attempt at a "Jimmy Choo" shoe...I think it turned out pretty good.
Ah...to be 20 again....NOT!
I loved making this cake for a non-profit organization called "Icing Smiles". You should check them out if you think you'll have the time and supplies to bake for a family with a sick child. The rewards are priceless.

I'm not a spooky person (can't even watch horror movies anymore without nightmares). But, these are fun for the kids and makes great cupcake topper themes. If you want the spiders in the web you can actually buy packages of tiny spiders from a party store. While the chocolate is still wet, just attach the spider and let it dry! Just be sure to let your party guests know the spider is NOT edible!
Make them thick enough to stand on their own....
you can add color sprinkles while wet....
or not :-).
Melt some tempered white chocolate (you can buy the disk at any craft store). I used a piping bag and #3 tip. Make an "X" on parchment or Wax paper....
continue until you have...
Connect those lines starting close to the center and finally...
connect the ends! You can make it as big or as little as you like. Doesn't matter if it's not perfect because...webs never are.
