Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Ready in: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
1 (18.5 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1 pound black shoestring licorice
1 (16 ounce) can white frosting
48 pieces candy corn
48 cinnamon red hot candies
1/4 cup orange decorator sugar
Prepare cupcakes according to package directions. Let cool completely.
Cut licorice into 3 inch sections.
Working with one or two cupcakes at a time, so the frosting doesn't set before decorating,
frost the cupcakes with the white frosting.
Insert licorice pieces into the outer edges of the cupcakes to make the legs of the spider, 3 legs on each side.
Place two pieces of candy corn on the front of the cupcake for fangs and use two red hots as eyes.
Sprinkle with decorator sugar.
