Spiderweb Cupcakes

So I can't my white chocolate spiderwebs actually look like spiderwebs, or do they look like snowflakes?  I'm leaning towards spiderwebs, but I think they could probably pass for snowflakes too.....

These are the cupcakes that I brought to our neighborhood Halloween party.  I knew that it would be mostly kiddos eating these, so I just went ahead and did a box cake mix of Halloween funfetti.  But I knew I wanted to try doing those white chocolate spiderwebs that I had been seeing on Pinterest, so I made some chocolate frosting for the spiderwebs to sit on.  The chocolate frosting recipe I used was from Our Best Bites, and it has a great chocolate flavor, without being too intense for the kiddos.  The spiderwebs are from Country Living.  There's a recipe and a template to print out.....just follow the lines!

One of these days the weather will cool off and it will actually feel like Fall!  At least it's a little cooler in the mornings now......but by the afternoon it's still plenty hot.  We've been to our local pumpkin patch twice so far (Lombardi Ranch), and both times it's been pretty toasty out there.  Going to the pumpkin patch is one of the things I look forward to all year.......the pictures always come out gorgeous, and the kids have an absolute blast!  Half the time they completely ignore the pumpkins, and instead want to run in the hay bale mazes, play on the vintage fire truck, and ride the choo-choo.

Pure happiness!

Check out Our Best Bites for the chocolate frosting recipe, and Country Living for the spiderweb template........and Enjoy!

The kids can spend forever just running through the pumpkins!

  4. Looks like you had a great time at the pumpkin patch! I love pumpkins. Your cupcakes look delicious. Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.

  5. They look like webs to me. But with the slightest tweaking they will look like snowflakes, especially with the context of winter.
