These cupcakes are an easy and fun little idea for Halloween! Although the original idea calls for orange and black colors (black licorice legs and orange sprinkles) my boys decided they should be red and blue spiders in honor of the spider that transformed Peter Parker into Spiderman (they love their superheroes!). You could do either way...have fun!
* cupcakes, baked and ready (any flavor you like)
* frosting, vanilla
* thin red or black licorice
* red hot candies
* candy corn
* sugar sprinkles (orange, black or red, etc.)
Frost the cupcakes.
It helps to use a toothpick to poke the "legs" into the cupcake.
Kids are great at "helping" to create the spiders...or eating all the candy-corn!!
The best part of making spooky spiders: eating them! Enjoy!
