Cupcake a Week: Spooky Spiders

With Halloween only a few days away I figured I better get in on the festivities and create some spooky spider web cupcakes! It seems like new Halloween color trends are popping up all over the place this year. It's no longer your traditional orange and black, but lime greens and purples are being thrown into the mix! So after finding a pack of assorted color spider rings at the store, I thought it would be fun to display them on some matching purple, green and orange cupcakes!

Using some black glitter gel I piped on three circles and then using a toothpick pulled the gel from the inside circle towards the outside circle to create the web. It really is a super easy decorating technique so if you need a Halloween treat for this weekend, give this a try!

Of if you feel a little more ambitious and want an even bigger spider web, check out this cake I made last year.

What are your plans this Halloween? Will you be dressing up, taking the kids trick or treating or passing out candy?
