I found this marshmallow cobweb idea from Cake Blog.  Here are the steps
STEP 1 : Cover your cake(s) in black fondant.
STEP 2 : Place marshmallows into a microwave-safe bowl.  Heat for 30 seconds.
STEP 3 : Stir marshmallows.  {Warning.  Hot marshmallows will burn.  And it hurts!}
STEP 4 : Keep stirring.
STEP 5 : Stir, stir, stir some more!  Stir until marshmallows are cool enough to touch.
STEP 6 :    Using both hands, stretch a small glob of marshmallow out into a long, thin, stringy strand.  Way, way longer and thinner than what is shown above
STEP 7 :  Start wrapping the stringy marshmallow around your cake.  Go up, down, around and around.  Diagonal.  Every which way.  There is no right or wrong way for a spider web to look.  Just start wrapping.  Go light at first until you get the hang of it.  Less is more!  And thinner strands look better in the end.
STEP 8 :  Continue to pull, stretch and drape marshmallow strings.  Going every direction way you possibly can.
STEP 9:   Cover second tier in marshmallow strings.  Stack both tiers together.
STEP 10 : Add additional marshmallow strings to both tiers, draping some from one tier to the next.  Add a spider with long, spindly legs.  And you’re done!
I have to say, this cake was pretty fun to make! My hands got covered with gooey marshmallows and my son thought it was hilarious! “Why are you playing in the marshmallows Mommy?” lol,  The hardest part about this cake was the cleanup! But I’m sure you will be a lot cleaner then me, I got marshmallow everywhere! lol  Well Thanks for stopping by my blog and I hope you get a chance to make this cake, you can really wow your guests!
ENJOY!
