  • 515-g pkg devil's food cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 450-g container chocolate frosting
  • 450-g container vanilla frosting , using about half the container


  • Follow directions on cake package, using eggs, oil and water for cupcake preparation as well as baking times. Cool cupcakes, then generously spread each with 1 to 2 tablespoons (15 to 30 mL) chocolate frosting. Heat vanilla frosting in a microwave on high just until it starts to liquefy, from 20 to 30 seconds. Stir to a smooth consistency. For spiderweb decoration, work with 3 cupcakes at a time. From tip of a pointed spoon, drizzle a small circle of frosting in centre of cupcake, then 2 larger ones around it, leaving a 1/4-inch (0.5-cm) space between each circle. Using a toothpick, start in centre of cupcake and drag it toward edge. Repeat in a circular pattern until spiderweb is complete. If frosting stiffens and is difficult to drizzle, reheat in microwave.
