Spider Muffins

This is an easy recipe that is all in the decoration of the product. Kids enjoy themed play and parties. Spiders are a Halloween perenial, and you can't go far wrong with a rich cake mix.

1 box devil's food cake mix
24 muffin cups
5 cups powdered sugar
8 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
plastic spiders

Prepare devil's food cake mix as per instructions for 24 muffins. While waiting for the muffins to cook, add powdered sugar and milk to a mixing bowl (toward the last couple of tablespoons of milk, add them one at a time to get desired consistency), continually stirring to make a frosting. When the muffins are done, spread a thin layer of white frosting on each muffin. You should have about a cup or so of frosting left. Add cocoa to this. Now scrape frosting out of bowl and into a zip-loc bag. Cut small hole in corner of the bag and, forcing out the frosting, draw spider webs on each cup cake. Add plastic spiders and serve.
