My Daughter and I used to go to a cake shop named “Betty Cakes”. We would always order their spider cake. It was a chocolate cake, with a buttercream frosting, and a chocolate ganache poured over the entire cake. They would always decorate the top with a white chocolate spider web, hence the name spider cake. That store went out of business (tears), so I have tried to duplicate the cake with this recipe. We love it! I do not bother with pipping a spider web on mine, so didn’t think spider cake made sense for the title. However we still call it spider cake around here. I use this cake recipe for all my chocolate cakes, wether it be this recipe, cupcakes, or a quick 9X13 inch cake. I know your family is going to love this one!
