Spider Cupcakes for Halloween
I went to Michael's in search of a Halloween Cupcake Papers and found Martha Stewart papers on sale. When I got home I was psyched because they are foil lined! That means the batter doesn't bleed through like the cheap papers.
I knew cutting the candy would be time consuming, so I did it in the afternoon, while the cupcakes baked. I always use the Martha Stewart ~ One Bowl Chocolate Cake, found on this site.
After dinner my son and I did all the decorating. I spread the Orange Cream Cheese Butter Cream. I showed him how to make the webs by drawing 3 hollow circles, then dragging a toothpick from the center to the outside so he worked on that part. It was my turn again and I placed the spider in place. It took about an hour and a half. We had a great time, just chatting and hanging out together, something we both enjoy.
I love delivering treats to school in a white bakery style box with a window. When we were done decorating, we filled the box so it was all ready for the next morning.
After school he told me I was a big hit! He even had enough to take some to his previous teachers.
