These cupcakes are created by the wonderful and talented Victorious Cupcakes.
Bake some basic vanilla cupcakes and allow to cool before filling the middle with jam (see step eleven).
Soften some modeling paste, kneading the paste with your fingers.
Dip a cocktail stick into food colouring and apply to the paste, kneading to mix thoroughly.
Using a rolling pin, flatten out the fondant and then cut out some circles and place to one side to set.
Spread some food colouring on to a kitchen towel using a pallet knife.
Take your desired stamp and press into the colouring, making sure the stamp is completely covered with the black paste.
Place the stamp in the centre of the fondant circle and gently press, making sure you use even pressure.
Remove the stamp to see the image.
Mix some royal icing powder and water in a bowl and place to one side.
Pipe a single line of royal icing above the spider.
Cut a hole in the centre of the cupcakes and fill with jam.
Make some basic buttercream and fill a piping bag.
Create a swirl using an open star nozzle.
Place the decorated circle on top of the cup cake.
Finish off the presentation by packaging the Halloween cupcakes in our printed spider cupcake boxes.
