This week has been filled with visions of pumpkins, spiders, skulls and All-Things-Halloween. For his class party, The Son specifically requested spider cupcakes. We scrolled many, many images on Google and found The Perfect Spider on M&M's website.
For this adventure, much of the fun is getting to the destination. The Kids had a grand time giving each spider a personality and facial feature. I believe the sad faces had something to do with short, amputated legs. Guess who was manning that station?
48 black or red licorice laces or 12 pinwheels
runts, m&ms, or skittles
Reserve 2 tablespoons frosting in a separate bowl. Frost each cupcake. Coat the tops with chocolate jimmies.
Cut each lace into 4 equal pieces (or unroll the pinwheel and cut into eight equal pieces. Then carefully separate the laces.) Using a toothpick and leaving enough room in the front for the marshmallow eyes, create four holes on each side of each cupcake. Insert a lace into each hole.
Cut a marshmallow in half. Using the reserved frosting, attach the two marshmallow pieces to the cupcake. Dot a candy with frosting and attach it to the marshmallow. Dot another candy and attach as mouth.
