One of the best things about Halloween is coming up with treats that are sweet yet spooky. Enter these wicked spiderweb cupcakes - they may not be apt for trick or treaters but they are the perfect treat for a Halloween party.
There are many great Halloween cupcake ideas on the web but not all of them are easy to recreate at home. However, the ghoulish treats pictured above come with a step-by-step tutorial from the very talented baker Elizabeth LaBau over at Sugar Hero. She illustrates how to make Halloween cupcakes that are easy yet stunning.
What you will need are cupcakes (any flavor will do as long as it pairs well with chocolate), chocolate buttercream, lots of ganache to get that lustrous topping, and a bit of royal icing. A small piping bag and a toothpick are really the only tools you'll need. If you really want to go the extra mile you can splurge on the spiderweb cupcake liners and some chocolate spiders for decoration.
