  • Take off 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.
  • 7.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.
  • Place spiders all around on each cupcake. Just be really careful when placing them on the web.
