These are a great for a kid's Halloween party! Chocolate cake mix is an easy option when you are making so many. Use liquorice for the legs and jelly beans or smarties for the eyes.
Feel free to play around with the cupcake decorations - you can use any colour icing, use Smarties for the eyes, or snakes for the legs. Just try to make them look as scary as you can.
These are pretty cute to make. I suggest inserting the liquorice laced into the cakes before icing them...it made it so much easier this way. Recommended for Halloween parties for sure!! I hope the kids enjoy these at my son's school party!!! Thanks for posting this Heatherly! - 29 Sep 2008
Very cute idea. I also could not find black laces. The red kind worked well and matched the eyes. I liked that much better. - 29 Sep 2008
This was a lot of fun to make and my adult friends loved it. We used red liquorice instead, no one liked the black. - 29 Sep 2008
