I’m not really sure how it became October……but it’s suddenly here. Heck, it’s actually half over! HA I thought I better get a move on some Halloween treats before it passes me right by.

It all started when I stopped at World Market about a month ago. I just love that store, especially at Halloween! They have so much fun decor, party supplies, food, and even Halloween wine and beer.
I picked up some cute spider cupcake stands.
So, I baked cupcakes! Genius, I know right? lol
I mixed up a batch of Perfect Cupcakes using a mix ‘recipe’ using a box of Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge topped them with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting tinted orange and Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting.
Let’s Make Spiderweb Cupcakes
- spread a little orange frosting (add orange gel color to vanilla frosting) on top of the cupcakes with an offset spatula.
- using a tube of Wilton Black Decorator Icing and a #5 Round Icing Tip and coupler, draw 3-4 circles on top of orange frosting
- using a toothpick pull outward from the center black circle to the outer circle to create your cobweb, repeating around the cupcake about six times .
How To Decorate Halloween Boo and Eek Cupcakes
- spread a little orange frosting on top of cupcake with an offset spatula.
- use a tube of Wilton Black Decorator Icing and a#5 Round Icing Tip and coupler, to write the words Boo or Eek
Learn How To Decorate Spider Cupcakes
- spread a little chocolate frosting on top of the cupcake with an offset spatula.
- set cupcake in a small bowl and cover frosting with black sanding sugar (pour loose sugar that falls into the bowl on to next cupcake or back in the container)
- place 2 edible icing eyes on top
- set cupcake in spider cupcake holder.
If you’re feeling extra indulgent, fill a 16″ decorator bag with frosting and using a #7 tip, squeeze a little frosting into each cupcake before decorating.

OMG!! I love that little spider leg cupcake stand. I would love for you to stop by and link up your spider cupcakes to More the Merrier Monday. It lasts through Wednesday so you have plenty of time to link up. I also have a link party for Halloween projects that I would love for you to link up to as well.
MY favorite would have to be the spider webs
