No, not a Bush Tucker Trial!
These are another tasty Halloween treat for you to try. I can’t really call it a recipe as such – it’s made from shop bought goodies…
I was going to call them Teacake Spiders, but spiders have eight legs and I could only jam in six Mikado’s to the teacake before it crumbled.
Therefore, they are 'wingless' Daddy Long Legs, which do have six legs. And I’m sure you will agree the legs are long!
You could make your own teacakes if you so desire, I have a recipe here for Easter ones which can be easily tweaked to be non-Easter. For convenience and time however, I used pre-made ones. I used Daim bar Mikado’s for the legs, they are kind of knobbly, so add to the creepy effect. You could also use Matchmakers too.
I’d bought some edible googly eyes online, but you could improvise and us anything you like, such as white icing, white chocolate, but the eyes are a great investment. You get loads in a pack and will last you a few Halloweens.
To stick the eyes on I heated the end of a teaspoon and held it against the teacake to melt the chocolate a little, then stuck the eyes to that. I also made a hole in the top of some so the eyes popped out of the top of the teacakes which I thought were pretty cute.
These are such a simple idea, but one I think would add a tasty bit of ghoulishness to a Halloween buffet!
