Halloween Spider Cupcakes

Brace yourselves…Halloweens coming! And with it comes cute pumpkins, black cats and scary ghosts. Oh yes, and lots of halloween themed food! I’m all about simplicity, so this recipe is a basic one that is quick and easy to whip up. This recipe makes about 12 cupcakes and takes around 40 minutes from start to finish. 

What You’ll Need - Cupcakes

  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

What You’ll Need - Decorations

  • Icing (feel free to make your own but I bought pre-made for ease)
  • Liquorice laces (for the legs)
  • White chocolate drops (for the eyes)

What To Do

  1. Firstly pre-heat your oven to 375f or 150c
  2. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  3. Beat in the egg
  4. Beat in the flour mixed with baking powder and salt, alternating with the milk
  5. Stir in the vanilla extract
  6. Line your muffin tin with papers
  7. Divide mixture equally among the cases
  8. Pop in the oven to bake for 20 minutes
  9. Let them cool in the pan

Once completely cooled….

10. Squirt the icing on top of the buns
11. Place two white chocolate drops near the front for eyes
12. Stick at the liquorice laces in the icing for the legs
13. Take several pictures for various social media channels
14. Eat and enjoy (and possibly share)

Like I said, quick and easy. Hope you have a fun halloween full of more treats than tricks!
