I saw this recipe here in this news group quite a while ago.  I talk 
about making it a lot and describe it to others quite often, but just
haven't gotten around to trying it.  Let me know how it turns out for you!

Take your average cake mix.  Bake it up in 2 metal bowls--1 bigger than
the other.  One unmolded, cut the bigger one (the "body") in half,
horizontally.  CAREFULLY scoop out an adequate cavity in each half.
FILL with well-whipped set green Jello, and reattach the halves.
Frost black, arrange on serving platter. Use licorice stix as legs.
Use 2 BIG green gumdrops and 6 little ones as eyes.  When the cake is
cut into, it spurts green goop, just like a real spider when stepped on.
