My parents had us over for dinner the other night and my job was to bring the dessert. With Halloween right around the corner and one person who is petrified of spiders I knew these super simple cupcakes would be perfect (insert witchy cackle here). I was short on time because it was a weeknight and had to pull the dessert together quick. I opted for a boxed cake mix and Cool Whip cream cheese frosting from the frozen food isle.
This amazing cool whip frosting can be found in the frozen food section at Wal-Mart right next to the regular Cool Whip. I picked mine up while planning to run in just to pick up the Sunday paper – you can see my shopping trip on Google+.
I whipped up the cake mix according to the box directions, divided it into three bowls and added food coloring to each one. Then I filled up the cupcake liners with a little of each color and used a toothpick to swirl the colors for a tie dye effect.
After the cupcakes came out of the oven I let them cool completely. Right before we left the house I filled a piping bag with the cool whip frosting and after frosting each one I embellished them with a creepy plastic spider! The cupcakes were a complete hit and so was the frosting! I loved using this frosting because it is a little on the thicker side and held its shape after being piped on. These babies looked and tasted better than any store bought cupcakes – plus they were super simple! (My kinda’ dessert!)
