To make our spider cupcakes we used:
8oz soft butter (dairy free spread)
8oz self-raising flour
8oz caster Sugar
For the Frosting & Topping:
7oz icing sugar
1oz cocoa powder
5oz unsalted soft butter / dairy free spread
1 tbsp of milk
Chocolate sprinkles (vermicelli)
Orange buttons or Smarties
Tube of black writing icing
One bag of Jelly Snakes
Mix the flour, spread, eggs & sugar together in a large mixing bowl. Spoon the mixture into cupcake cases, & bake in oven (180c) for 15-20mis until golden. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
While the cupcakes are cooling you can start to make the frosting.
Beat the butter until soft, then add the icing sugar, cocoa powder, milk, & mix until smooth. (If the mixture is too thick just add a teaspoon or two of milk.) Spread the frosting over each cupcake & add the orange buttons for eyes.
Just keep an eye on them though to make sure they don't escape... those legs move fast!
