How to make Spider Cupcakes!!!

You know whats just around the corner. Its that time of the year again and its time for us to get into the kitchen and get decorating. 
There's nothing like an adorable spider cupcake project to get us back into the decorating mood. 
You know as soon as Halloween is over there will be many occasions to decorate goodies--Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Chinese New Years, Valentines, Easter, St. Patrick's Day, Mothers Day, Fathers Day annnnnnd hmmmm Oh and how could I forget family birthdays, thanks yous, welcome homes, graduations..........AHHHHHHHHH and then SUMMER HOLIDAY:)
 So lets get cracking. 

All you need is:
Licorice Strings + Candy Eyealls + Choco Sprinkles + Buttercream + Cupcakes

 Step 1: 
Spread some buttercream on top of your cupcakes. 
The buttercream doesn't have to be perfectly smooth because you will be covering the top of each cupcake with some chocolate sprinkles. 
After spreading the cupcakes with buttercream, you can dip your cupcake in a bowl of chocolate sprinkles to cover the entire top of cupcake.

 Step 2:
Cut licorice string into desired length then stick 4 strings on each side of the cupcakes making 8 legs in total.
 Step 3:
Stick the candy eyeballs on top of the cupcake. 
Of Coarse I had to do them in.................................
What else Preeeeeeeeeeeeety Pink:)
So here we go Yipppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
Dip in pink spinkles
 Put on the legs
 Remember the eyeballs don't have to look perfectly straight. You can make the spiders look a bit Wonky by placing the eyeballs one up and one down.
 Oops ran outta legs.... Or you can have some with no legs tooooo.
Now thats pretty spoooky:)
