 rich dark chocolatey Spider and Spiderweb Halloween Cupcakes


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 .

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.
