Spiderweb Cupcakes

When witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers, ‘tis near Halloween. ~Author Unknown

Need a last minute idea for a Halloween treat?

 This “spiderweb” technique is so simple & it’s a great way to decorate cupcakes in honor of Halloween!

Here’s a list of few things you will need for these cupcakes:

1). one batch of chocolate cupcakes

2). white buttercream frosting

3). toothpicks

4). black food color/writing gel

First – frost each of the cupcakes with the buttercream icing, then, using the black food color gel pipe three circles on the cupcake (in a design similar to a bull’s-eye).

 Next, gently drag a toothpick from the smallest circle in the center of the cupcake towards the outside edge. Repeat this step all the way around the cupcake, using a clean toothpick each time.

See? It’s really that simple! Happy Halloween!
