Here is a close-up of the topper. The spider is covered in fondant. The legs were royal and I didn't know they would even work until I got there. I couldn't attach them at home 'cuz I was sure they'd break off in transit (course I never thought of doing a test run DOY), I just took lots of extra pieces and said a lot of prayers! My hands were shaking like a leaf when I applied them with everyone staring; only one broke. Sheesh this dang spider almost gave me a nervous breakdown!
