Easy Halloween Cupcake

Here’s a tutorial demonstrating how to make an easy spider cupcake for any Halloween party.

Growing up, I loved baking.  In my middle school and high school years, I loved baking a Duncan Hines yellow cake and smothering it with canned chocolate fudge icing. I’d even eat a leftover slice for breakfast the following day.

The whole idea of this video is to show you a QUICK, cute, Halloween cupcake. I bake from scratch all the time, so it’s not very time consuming for me, but I know it seems like it takes forever for those who don’t do it every day. Fear not! Here’s an easy recipe that tastes a little more home-made than just a box of mix, water, oil, and eggs.

Yellow Cupcakes with Chocolate Fudge Icing

  • 1 yellow cake mix – $1.04
  • 1 box INSTANT vanilla pudding – $0.69
  • 1 c milk – $0.18
  • 1 c oil – $0.33
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten – $0.48
  • chocolate fudge icing – $1.69

*I purchased the store brand for ALL ingredients.

Total cost for cake and icing: $4.41

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line cupcake tins with paper or foil liners.  Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Fill cupcake tins 2/3 full.  Bake 18-19 minutes until toothpick comes out clean and tops are golden brown.

When cupcakes have cooled completely, ice them with chocolate fudge icing.  Add eyes and legs.
