  • Gummy Tarantulas


  1. Bake and frost cupcakes according to the recipe you're using.
  2. To create spiderwebs, create three to four circles with black icing, beginning with a small circle in the center of the cupcake and moving toward larger circles as you move toward the outer edges. Using a toothpick or a knife, lightly drag the point from the inner circle through the outer circle. Repeat at least 6 times around the cupcake, creating the spiderweb.
  3. Finish by adding a gummy tarantula.
