How to make spider web cupcakes

spider web cupcakes

We love Halloween and know how, sometimes, it can be a busy time of year. This never stops us from whipping up some treats, but occasionally you want an easy project to make in just a few minutes.

These cupcakes are just that. Store bought cake and icing make this a treat to make in no time at all and a simple way to impress your guests.

YOU WILL NEED:

12 Store Bought Cupcakes With No Icing (or icing scraped off), Refrigerated
1 Tub of Store Bought Fudge Frosting
White Candy Coating
Disposable Piping Bag
Stencil Film (or Parchment Paper)
Spider Web Template (Note: The template should measure about 3″ across to fit on a standard cupcake. Readjust the image as necessary before starting)
Orange Baking Cups (optional)

STEP 1: MAKE WEBS

Place some candy coating in a disposable bag and then prop the bag in a cup to stand it up. Microwave it on defrost mode or half power for 30 seconds. Remove and then massage the bag to help melt the coating. Repeat this until the coating is completely melted.

Place the printed web template under the stencil film. Snip the very end of the bag and trace the web on to the film, making sure that all the lines are connected. Shift the template and keep piping more webs. Place the stencil film on a cookie sheet or tray and place in the fridge for 5 minutes for the webs to harden.

STEP 2: DIP THE CUPCAKES AND ADD WEBS

Transfer the fudge icing to a bowl and microwave for 10 seconds. Stir and microwave for just a few more seconds until you have the thick liquid consistency.

Remove some cupcakes from the fridge (as many cupcakes as you have piped webs) and dip each cupcake in the frosting to coat the top.

Remove the tray of webs from the fridge and use a spatula to transfer a web to each cupcake before the icing is fully dried. Repeat this whole process to finish the remaining cupcakes. Place each cupcake in a colorful liner to display.
