  1. Hi Britta – you’ll need to push them into the cupcake as well. The frosting won’t be enough to hold them.

  2. Hi Bakerella!
    These spider cupcakes are so fun and I’m planing on baking something like them for my boyfriends birthday, but I was wondering…. How are the liqourice attached? Do you stick it in the frosting or in the cupcake itself?
