Can fashion inspire food?
When I was asked to make a Halloween cake, I was bored with the idea of the typical pumpkin, orange and black theme. Instead that inspired me was the Rodarte FW08 collection. Rodarte always impresses me with their ethereal, lookslikeafairymadeit clothes. This collection in particular looks like a bunch of fashionable spiders all got together and spun these red and black dresses and tights.
To make the spiderwebs, I melted chocolate, put it in a Ziploc back, snipped off the end and made spiderwebs onto wax paper. Before they dried, I sprinkled big clear crystals on them.
