I was at Target the other day, looking for things I don’t need, when I came across these adorable Spider Cupcake Stands.
Of course, I had to buy them. I am convinced that Target specializes in mind control — they probably pipe it into the popcorn smell, which is totally hypnotizing.
And the Starbucks and ICEE machine on the way out? Well played, Target. Well played indeed.
Anyways, I bought the Spider Cupcake Stands (which were with the Halloween baking supplies), and when I got home I realized that I didn’t know what I was going to do with them.
Buy first, think later, that’s my motto. My husband LOVES it. Sike.
Then my husband suggested that I make cupcakes that look like spiders. So I did.
If you need a cute and easy Halloween cupcake, these are for you. The cupcake stands add to the cuteness, but you could always forgo the stands and insert some black liquorice strands in the top sides of the cupcakes.
Just make sure that you do four on each side. Because spiders have 8 legs. And if you only do six your son will tell you that you made an insect, not a spider and you will get angry.
Frost your cupcake (I used purple and green) and sprinkle on Disco Dust (optional).
The head is a mini Reese’s cup turned on it’s side, frosted black. You can buy candy eyes HERE or at Target or Walmart…both have them in the Halloween baking aisle, as well as cherry flavored black licorice strands.
You can buy Disco Dust HERE.
These are so fun and easy — enjoy and have a happy Thursday!!
