What is needed to make these easy spider cupcakes
Before starting this dessert craft with your family, you need to make the cupcakes. I usually make these ahead of time, but if you have older kids they would love to participate in this part too.
For my recipe, I preheated the oven to 350 degrees F. Then I mixed the cake mix based on the package instructions in a large bowl. Next I filled muffin cups lined with a liner with approximately Â½ cup of the batter and baked until a tooth pick inserted into the middle came out clean.
First place the Oreos in a freezer plastic bag and then beat them with a kitchen tenderizer or a rolling pin until you have crushed Oreos. Just crush them until they are the size that you prefer. Mine were large chunks and were not finely crushed. I recommend using a freezer bag as it holds up better during the crushing of the Oreos.

4. Roll 12 balls of black icing, then flatten to roughly the size of a pound coin. Roll out the remaining icing to 0.3cm thickness; use a sharp knife to cut into thin strips, about 1.5cm long.
