1 1/3 Cup Water, Warm (95-105°F)
1 Packet Yeast
1 Bag Wild About Bread™ Mix
1/4 Cup All Purpose Flour, approximate
1 Set Candy Eyes
1 Tube White Frosting
Prepare Wild About Bread™ dough according to instructions and let proof at room temperature until double in size.
Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper or spraying with pan release spray.
Sprinkle half the All Purpose Flour onto a clean counter top and then dump the proofed dough onto the floured surface.
Knead the flour into the dough. Add more flour as you need to be able to handle the dough.
Shape the dough into a ball and then cut the dough in half.
Form the body of the spider by shaping one half of the dough into a ball. Place the formed ball onto the prepared baking sheet.
Cut the other half of dough into thirds. Form the head of the spider by shaping one of the thirds into a ball and place onto baking sheet next to the spider body.
Divide the remaining dough into 8 equal portions. Form the spider legs by rolling each piece into long line. Arrange the 8 legs how you want them to look. One end of each leg should be touching the body.
Decorate your spider how you would like using diluted food coloring, herbs, egg wash, etc.
Proof dough at room temperature until almost double in size.
Preheat over to 425°F.
Bake for 27-32 minutes or until a temperature probe reads 190-200°F.
Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
