What’s Needed

Spun Spiderweb Cupcakes

 Directions

Spun Spiderweb Cupcakes

 In a saucepan, add the sugar, corn syrup, and water, mix well.

Place a candy thermometer on the side of the pan.

Over medium to high heat, bring mixture to a boil.

Make sure you are constantly stirring until you’ve reached a boil.

Once the mixture is boiling, STOP stirring.

Let the mixture boil for 6-7 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 280 degrees.

Take off the stove immediately and with a wire whisk create small round “webs” on parchment paper.

I just spun the whisk in circles and crisscrossed back and forth a few times until I had a little web.

***You must work FAST. The candy will start to harden quickly. Make as many as you can before the mixture is gone or starts to harden.

I managed to make about 12. I made extra just in case some broke.

Let cool completely.

While those are cooling, frost your cupcakes.

Once the webs are completely cooled, carefully stand them up on each cupcake.

If needed, take a knife and make a score on the cupcake and place the web in the scored line.

It’ll give the candy web a place to “sit” into.

Spun Spiderweb Cupcakes

Place spiders all around on each cupcake.

Just be really careful when placing them on the web.

Serve right away and enjoy!
