Are you ready for Halloween?!!!

With these incredibly easy Cupcake Decorations you will more than thrill any Trick-or-Treaters that come to your door.

Ingredients
For each cupcake, you will of course need cupcakes – homebaked from scratch, baked out of a box or shop bought, any will do.
Frost each cupcake with buttercream or frosting coloured with orange food colouring
Also, prepare some melted chocolate in a piping bag or zip-loc bag with the corner cut off.

Spidersweb Cupcakes
These need no extra ingredients than those listed above.
First, on a piece of greaseproof paper, using the melted chocolate, pipe spiders webs, and spiders. This may take a few practice goes, but don’t forget every spiders web is different and they’re not always neat and tidy. To make it easier, you may want to draw some webs onto a piece of paper, which can be placed under the greaseproof and traced with the chocolate. Place the spiderswebs into the fridge for 10 minutes to set.

Once they are set they will peal easily from the greaseproof paper and can placed onto the cupcakes.
