  57. 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?

    Thanks xoxo

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