These cupcakes are made from a simple Duncan Hines boxed recipe. But it’s all in the decorating that makes these cupcakes fun for the Halloween season.
1box Duncan Hines® devil’s food cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
1container Duncan Hines® Whipped vanilla frosting

3 drops red food color 1 drop blue food color for purple frosting

Follow the instructions on the box for baking.
I used whipped white frosting. Tint frosting with red and yellow food colors to make orange frosting., And red and blue food colors to make purple frosting. Spread frosting over tops of cupcakes.
To make spider webs, Squeeze circles of black decorating gel on each cupcake; pull toothpick through gel from center outward to make web. Place a plastic spider on each cupcake.
