Spider Web Cupcakes


Spider Web Cupcakes are a huge hit and really easy to make so I thought I would share how make them.



Ingredients

1 (18.25 oz.) package chocolate cake mix
1 (5.9 oz.) package chocolate pudding mix
4 eggs
1 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup milk
chocolate icing
1 cream cheese icing
1 orange icing
1 package of cheap plastic rings
12 cupcake wrappers
1 small Ziploc bag 

Directions


Cup Cake Batter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and pudding, milk, sour cream, oil, beaten eggs and water. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour batter into a well greased 12 cup bundt pan.

Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until top is springy to the touch and a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool cake thoroughly in pan at least an hour and a half before icing.

Web Icing
Spoon out four tablespoons of the cream cheese icing and put into the Ziploc bag; make sure you put the icing into one corner of the bag. Close and set aside for the web.

Icing Cup Cakes
After the cupcakes are completely cooled ice the cupcakes like normal except try to keep it smooth. 

Ice 6 cupcakes orange and 6 chocolate.

Spider Web
Take the Ziploc bag of icing twist top to push the icing into the corner. 

Snip a very small hole in the corner of the bag; allowing the icing to be squeezed out.

With the icing draw a line down the center across the diameter of the cupcake.

Draw 2 more lines that divides the top into six pie shaped pieces.

Make a a small hexagon around the center of the cupcake.

Move outward and draw another hexagon; repeat until you have 3 to 4 hexagons

Stick the spider ring into the cupcake.
