Bake your cupcakes in orange liners. Let them cool completely and then place in the freezer for an hour, which will make them easier to handle when dipping.

Download the spiderweb template 

Place the template on a cookie sheet and place a sheet of parchment or wax paper on top. Tape the corners so the paper lays flat.

Heat some white candy coating in the microwave on half power. Remove every 30 seconds and stir frequently until melted.

Place the melted candy coating in a bag and snip the end to create a piping bag. Using the template as a guide, pipe the spiderwebs. Place the webs in the fridge for 5 minutes while you do the next step.

Chocolate Spider Web How-To

Place the tub of chocolate fudge frosting in a bowl and microwave for 10-15 seconds (the frosting melts very quickly). Stir and heat for a few more seconds if necessary until you have a thick liquid consistency.

Dip the same amount of cupcakes as you have finished webs and set aside for a few seconds to dry.

Remove the spiderwebs from the fridge and gently lift them from the stencil film using a spatula and transfer them to the cupcakes. Repeat with remaining cupcakes.
