About this recipe: These are a great for a children's Halloween party! Chocolate cake mix is an easy option when you are making so many. Use liquorice laces for the legs and mini jelly beans or Smarties for the eyes.
Feel free to play around with the fairy cake decorations - you can use Smarties or buttons for the eyes, or strawberry laces for the legs. Just try to make them look as scary as possible!
Something else. I suggest inserting the liquorice into the fairy cakes before icing them...it made it so much easier this way. Also, I couldn't find black liquorice laces so I used red. - 07 Aug 2008
Looked great! My Granddaughter & Neice had great fun making these with me. We used melted chocolate intead of icing with chocolate bits shaken on top, and used white chocolate chips for the eyes! - 29 Oct 2009
This was a lot of fun to make and my adult friends loved it. We used red liquorice instead, no one liked the black. - 15 Sep 2008
