Spiderweb Cupcakes

These were so easy to make and were a hit with the junior class at school! The needed ingredients and step-by-step instructions are below.

1 box cake mix
1 container white icing
1 tube black or orange gel icing
plastic spider rings
Halloween cupcake holders

Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Line muffin tins with cupcake liners, fill 2/3 full and cook according to package directions. Let cool.

Place icing in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 5-second intervals until smooth and cupcakes can be dipped in icing to coat top. Don't overheat or icing will become too runny. You will have to try this a couple of times to know the exact consistency.

Dip cupcake tops in icing and coat to the top of the cupcake liners. Let set.

To decorate, draw three circles on the tops of the cupcakes with the gel icing. Using a toothpick, start at the center circle and gently pull the toothpick outward to draw the gel icing out to look like a web.

Place a spider ring in the center of each cupcake atop the spider web. Place on a spooky tray and enjoy!
