Scary Spiderweb Cupcakes

Perfect for a Halloween party, these rich, chocolaty cupcakes are fun to make.

1box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® devil's food cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
1container Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
3drops red food color
4to 5 drops yellow food color
1tube (0.68 ounce) Betty Crocker® black decorating gel
48large black gumdrops
  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Make and cool cupcakes as directed on box for 24 cupcakes.
  2. Tint frosting with red and yellow food colors to make orange frosting. Spread frosting over tops of cupcakes.
  3. Squeeze circles of decorating gel on each cupcake; pull knife through gel from center outward to make web. To make each spider, roll out 1 gumdrop and cut out 8 strips for legs; place another gumdrop on top. Place spider on cupcake. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

Turn these into Holly Wreath Cupcakes by using green-tinted frosting instead of orange. Squeeze circles of red decorating gel on each cupcake, and decorate with small red cinnamon candy "berries."
