EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Turn these into Holly Wreath Cupcakes by using green-tinted frosting instead of orange. Squeeze circles of red decorating gel on each cupcake, and decorate with small red cinnamon candy berries.

Get the kids to help! Kids can make spider legs without cutting by pinching and gently rolling gumdrops back and forth between their fingertips into long thin strips. The more they roll them, the stickier they become, so have extra sugar handy to make them less sticky.

If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
