Bats and Spider Cupcakes

Let bats and spiders loose in your house with these sweetly spooky treats!


  • How to Pipe Frosting: Insert desired decorating tip in pastry bag. Fold down top of pastry bag about halfway, forming a cuff. Spoon enough frosting into bag to fill halfway. Unfold cuffed top and twist bag until it meets level of frosting in bag, To pipe, hold bag firmly and squeeze from top of bag, keeping bag twisted to prevent frosting from leaking out from top of bag. If you don't have a pastry bag, you can use a resealable plastic bag instead. Spoon frosting into bag, then cut piece off one corner of bag. Twist top of bag as directed, then use to pipe frosting onto cupcakes.
  • How to Use the Remaining Dry Gelatin Mixes: Combine leftover dry gelatin mixes in medium bowl. Add 1-1/2 cups boiling water; stir 2 min. until mixes are completely dissolved. Stir in 1-1/2 cups cold water. Refrigerate several hours or until firm.

These turned out so pretty! Next time I will use maybe a tablespoon and a half as two tablespoons of each batter was too much-came over the top of the cups and spread out on the pan. I used part of the batter for mini cupcakes...used a teaspoon of each batter and baked at 325 for 10 minutes. The mini's are so cute!


These are super cute & yummy! I used Pillsbury Pink Lemonade frosting & it paired perfect with these! 2 tablespoons is way too much! I didn't measure, but I would guess I used 1 or 1 1/2 tablespoons of each.


My 2 year old boys loved helping to make these...and eat them too! The biggest disappoinment was that the cake stuck to the cupcake liners...maybe due to the high sugar content?? Cupcake turned into crumbs when I tried to take the liner off. Might try with less jello next time.
