How to make Fun Fondant Spiders for Halloween

Do you know the definition of arachnophobia? Arachnophobia is an extreme or irrational fear of spiders. I am not a huge fan of spiders but thank goodness I am not arachnophobic because I see spiders here all the time. Some of them are big and some of them are small but they are all creepy! And you know something funny, they were all inspirations for these fondant spiders. How to make Fun Fondant Spiders for Halloween | The Bearfoot BakerI hope these are a little cuter than the real thing! Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, you can eat these instead of running from them. Sweet revenge!
