Happy Halloween! I love Halloween because it’s my favorite time of the year. This year, I waited too long to get a decent pumpkin. Normally, I would carve 2 or 3 of them, but by the time I got to the grocery store to pick some out they were all picked over. Decorating cupcakes is a lot more fun than carving pumpkins right? That, and you can eat the cupcakes. Pumpkins just end up rotting on your door step anyway. Tonight I’m celebrating a little early by watching The Conjuring and eating some Spider cupcakes. That should keep me up all night long. Halloween night we hand out candy and I plan on getting caught up on American Horror Story.
I don’t really like spiders but these guys are kind of cute.
To make these cupcakes you will need
Black Licorice Rope
For the cupcakes, I just used a regular box of moist cake mix. Frost the cupcakes and dip them in the sprinkles. Frost the back of the eyeball and place it on the front of the cupcake. Then poke the licorice ropes through the cupcake to make the legs.
