Spider Cupcakes are perfect for Halloween or a Scary Kid’s Party!

These are soooo cute and sooooo easy to make!


  1. Place butter and icing sugar in a bowl and beat on low speed until combined.

  2. Combine vanilla and milk in a small bowl and slowly add to the frosting mixture.

  3. Once combined turn the speed high and beat the frosting for about 6 minutes.

  4. Divide frosting between bowls (depending on how many different colours you want) and add a few drops of food colouring at a time until you reach the desired colour.

  5. Place frosting in piping bags or use a spoon to top the cupcakes.

  6. Time to get creative! Place an oreo on each cupcake and gently push it down a little.

  7. Use a black icing pen to create legs.

  8. Place two small circles on the cookie and then a sugar eyeball on top.

  9. Then draw on some pincers.
