Spiderweb Cupcakes

Have I mentioned how much I love Halloween before? It’s my favorite Holiday. I love it so much, I made my own grim reaper,

that I found on pinterest.

I made my own tombstones out of Styrofoam and used wooden dowels to keep them in the ground.

I took some old jeans that were no longer being worn, stuffed them with plastic bags and put a shoe on it.That’s fake blood, I found at the Halloween store.

We love to carve pumpkins the night before. Ben likes the easy face pumpkins, and I like to try and carve the hard ones.

f stop: 16

exposure:  3 seconds

I also like to to make sweet Halloween treats, like cupcakes stuffed with Reese’s Peanut Buttercups and decorated with a spiderweb on top. I couldn’t get the right black, and it turned out a dark grey color. They’re so easy to make you pipe some circles on top of the cupcake and use a tooth pick to create the spider web.

C’mon people, it’s Halloween indulge a bit! I also like it simple.

Ingredients

1 box of chocolate cake mix.

1 container of white frosting

black food coloring

12 reese’s peanut butter cups

tooth picks

Directions:

Fill the cupcake half way with batter. Add a Reese’s peanut butter cup in the middle and add the rest of the batter in the cupcake mold. Bake according to directions on the back of the box.

Frost the cupcakes first, with white frosting. Use the black food coloring and color the frosting black. Fill in a pastry bag with the tiniest tip open you can find. Pipe different sized circles on top of the cupcakes. Use your tooth picks to create the spider webs like the picture shows above.

Notes: If you’re watching you’re waste line, make the chocolate cake with a can of soda. Leave out the Reese’s peanut butter cup. For the frosting use fat free or light cool whip. :)
