Spider Cakes

These are too fun not to share!

  • 1 box Devil’s Food cake mix
  • 1 can dark chocolate frosting
  • 1 can chocolate sprinkles
  • 24 large marshmallows
  • ¼ cup M&M’S Candies
  • 48 red or black licorice laces
  • 1 toothpick

Prepare the cake mix according to the package instructions. Line cupcake pans with paper-liners. Fill each cup with 2/3 cup of batter. Bake in a preheated 350°F for 18-21 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, and cool completely.

Reserve 2 tablespoons of the chocolate frosting in a resealable plastic bag. Spread the tops of the cupcakes with the remaining frosting. Then, coat the tops with the chocolate sprinkles. Cut the marshmallows in half crosswise. Using the reserved frosting, attach two marshmallow pieces to each cupcake as eyes. Dot the center of each marshmallow piece with frosting and attach M&M’S Candies. Then, attach another marshmallow piece with frosting and attach Candies for the mouth. Cut each licorice lace into four equal pieces. Press four holes into 2 sides of each cupcake using the toothpick. Insert a licorice piece into each hole for each spider’s legs, 8 pieces per cupcake.
