Frosted brownies for an October treat

These are some brownies that I made for an event last year. I thought I'd post the photos, in case you're looking for anything cheap and easy, but with wow! factor. I used  this recipe for the scratch brownies, but baked them in a conventional oven at 350 F, for about 22-25 minutes.
As you can see by the photos, you don't even need to pipe straight lines!

When brownies had cooled, I frosted with scratch
orange-colored buttercream frosting

I made a small bowl of dark cocoa icing and put it into a small
ziploc bag. I snipped a tiny bit off the corner of the
baggie to make a "piping" bag.

I piped concentric circles on the orange-colored frosting.

Then I "drew" out from the center in all directions,
using a toothpick. 

After creating this weblike design, I piped a
spider in the center of the web. See top photo.


  1. Fun! and a great Fall activity for kids to make the spider web!

  2. This is wonderful! Thank you for the inspiration!

  3. My husband had the TV turned to a Halloween food challenge on FoodNetwork. Their creations were just so scary and unappetizing.
    But yours is cute and looks yummy! I would of voted for you if you’d been on that TV challenge.

  4. Ooh, I may borrow this idea! Even I could pull off this level of decorating (not my strong suit, that's for sure). Thanks for sharing the pictures.

  5. This was a very fun and simple October-y dessert. I would hazard to say that even the most inexperienced cake decorator could do this. If any of you make this, send me a photo, or photos of any other inspired October treat! I'm always looking for new ideas, myself.
