I ate one of these puppies when they were HOT, right out of the oven. One word: *YUM*
I even found myself slathering on some extra ganache. I am a BAD girl!
To add my little twisty web and accompanying spider friend, it is EXTREMELY simple.
Get yourself some candy melts from your local cake supply or craft store, along with disposable decorating bags. You can typically buy them both in the same place...
Place the wafers into the bags and melt in the microwave according to the package directions. I nuke mine for 30 seconds, then give them a lovely massage to squish them all together.
When melted to a nice, smooth texture, cut of the tip of the bag. Don't go crazy! Just the tippy tip!!
Take your beautiful ganache cupcake....
Make a squiggly circle.... (Perfection is NOT necessary....)
Get a toothpick, not the one from dinner...
And PULL people, PULL!! Right from the center of the cupcake to the edge.
Tah Dah! Spider web done!
Now, for the spider.....
Use the same wafers and melt like above and cut off the tip.
On a parchment lined cookie sheet, draw little spiders by filling in the body and pulling out lines for the legs. Again, they DO NOT have to be perfect. They will actually be pretty ugly.....
When you are done drawing your heart out, stick them in the fridge for a couple of minutes to harden up.
Flip over your spider and place them in compromising positions on your cupcake. (Adults only!!)
"Thing 2" and "Thing 3" gave them a huge "thumbs up"! They ate all of the left over spiders too!!
As always, check out of the TWD Bakers and their FAB creations!!
