With chocolate bodies and licorice legs, these cute spiders on cobwebs will "catch" attention fast! They're easy to scare up, tooour home economists simply put a Halloween spin on cupcakes they baked from a purchased mix.
This fun Halloween cake looks like a giant trick-or-treat bag with lots of sugary candy spilling out of it. Amy McCoy, Huntington Beach, California came up with the idea after reminiscing with her sisters about the times they went trick-or-treating together.
Most kids will love the gruesome gummy body parts they find in the center of these cupcakes, but if it is too much for you, use any kind of autumn-motif gummies for the same sweet taste!—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
These little cupcakes are almost too sweet to eat! Let the kids help you assemble the charmers and you can teach a science lesson, too—what a great way to teach that all spiders have eight legs! —Sara Martin, Brookfield, Wisconsin
This tender spice cake has flecks of sweet potatoes and is so moist that you can dig into it without any frosting. I, however, like a little dollop of sweetness. So, I add a bit of frosting directly on each warm slice. The frosting melts into the cake and it is fabulous. —Emma Chapman, Springfield, Missouri
This makeover recipe is a winner! Packed with warm pumpkin flavor and spices, it's taller than the original cake but weighs in with just about half the fat, saturated fat and cholesterol and 187 fewer calories per piece. And if you ask us, that's sweet success no matter how you slice it.Shirley Dellinger, Elwood, Indiana
