Spiders in my bonnet- (lame joke, I know)

Here's another halloween treat for ya.

I know, I know, the last thing you need in your life is more junk food around the house.
-Just give them away, so someone else has to deal with mustering up the will-power.

So I made red velvet cake for the first time. I used this recipe.
I mixed the red food coloring and coco before hand and set it aside...

...........and when we added that ingredient, I told my kids it was blood. He he he.
I had Jenna and Justin believing me. Lindsey didn't buy it though.

Of course we would use blood in spider-web cupcakes.
That's what spiders like.

I slathered them with some cream cheese frosting (which was the best part).

Then for the web....
Let me introduce you to my little melty chocolate/ frosting bottles that look like clear ketchup bottles.
They are some of my best friends. I love them a lot.

You just draw a little web on wax paper then put em in the fridge (flat) for about 5 minutes.
They will pop off and jump right onto your cupcake. Almost.

So here they are.

The only thing missing is the spider.
That is on purpose.
I hate spiders in the most serious way.

p.s. I would like to refute my sisters comment on the pumpkin popcorn balls...
My mess was on the other counter.

  1. Those are fantastic. What kind of chocolate did you use? Did you use the frosting from the recipe or something different? I'm totally going to make those.
