Updated Sep 10, 2014

Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Make and cool cupcakes as directed on box for 24 cupcakes.
  • 2
    Tint frosting with red and yellow food colors to make orange frosting. Spread frosting over tops of cupcakes.
  • 3
    Squeeze circles of decorating gel on each cupcake; pull knife through gel from center outward to make web. To make each spider, roll out 1 gumdrop and cut out 8 strips for legs; place another gumdrop on top. Place spider on cupcake. Store loosely covered.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    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.
