Creepy Spider Cupcakes!

Posted on

Make your kids smile with these friendly spiders on a frosting web.  The cupcakes are layered orange and purple- so much FUN!!!!

INGREDIENTS:

DIRECTIONS:

  • Make cake mix according to package.
  • Divide batter into two bowls and add food coloring to make two fun fall colors.  (if you want to make this recipe A LOT easier just make your batter one color.)
  • Layer each color twice in 24 cupcake liners in tins (or just pour it in if you’ve only got one color).
  • Bake according to package and cool.
  • While cupcakes are baking and cooling, spoon frosting into bowl and color.
  • Melt small amount of white candy melts, spoon into ziplock, clip corner and pipe small “eyes” on malted milk balls.  Add a small candy or nonpareil if you want.  Allow these to harden.


  • Frost cupcakes.
  • Melt about a cup of dark chocolate candy melts and spoon them into a ziplock.  Clip the corner and pipe a spiral on the top of each cupcake.  Use a knife or toothpick to pull from the center out through the spiral, making a web design.  If you need some visual aids click here.
  • Set one malted milk ball on the center of each cupcake.
  • Get ready for your guests to smile at these cute little spiders!

My thoughts:  I’m not going to lie…these are adorable, but they are some extra effort.  If you are planing a fun Halloween party and you have time to mess around with piping chocolate eyes you will love this recipe– but if you need something quick I’d hold off on this.  I would do this again in a second- it was fun and relaxing to decorate these and I love how cute they are– can’t wait to serve them!!!  Hope you have fun!!!! r-
