Spider Web Halloween Cupcakes Recipe

Fall is my favorite time of year here in the Midwest so of course I am a huge lover of all things Halloween. I love to decorate and bake anything with a fun spooky theme. This spider web cupcakes recipe is perfect for your kids or any Halloween party. Plus, the kids always have fun playing with plastic spiders! I like to wash them after use and save them for next year. Enjoy!

Yields: 24 cupcakes
Total Time: 1 hour


  • 1 box white cake mix (plus required ingredients listed on the box, i.e. eggs, oil & water)
  • 1 container white frosting
  • Black gel writing frosting
  • Toothpick
  • Spider Rings
  • Cupcake linersSpider Web Cupcakes


  1. Bake cupcakes as directed on box.
  2. Allow cupcakes to cool. Spread a flat layer of white frosting onto each cupcake.Spider Web Cupcakes
  3. Using the black gel writing frosting, place a dot in the middle of the cupcake. Draw a circle around the dot, followed by one slightly larger circle, and a third larger circle.Spider Web Cupcakes
  4. Using a toothpick, start in the center dot and pull the toothpick through the frosting to the outer edge of the cupcake. Repeat this step to create a web – wiping the toothpick clean on a paper towel after each swipe.Spider Web Cupcakes
  5. Once the web is drawn, press a spider ring into the cupcake to complete the cupcake decoration.
