Halloween Spider Web Cupcakes Recipe:

Cupcake Adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction

  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup Wild Groves Kitchen Blend Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • Orange food coloring 

Chocolate Glaze

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil 


  1. First, preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray your muffin pan or line with cupcake liners. This recipe will make 11-12 cupcakes.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until there are no clumps. Set it aside. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, olive oil, and vanilla together until well combined. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture. Next, add in the buttermilk, and stir to combine. Do not overmix.
  3. Add your chocolate chips to the batter if desired.
  4. Spoon the batter into your muffin pan and bake 18-21 minutes, until puffed up and a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. For the frosting, add in the butter to a stand mixer. Beat until light and fluffy. Then, add in the powdered sugar, milk, vanilla extract, and food coloring and beat until it is all combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if necessary. If the frosting is too thin, add in another 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and if it is too thin, add in another tablespoon of milk. Set aside in the refrigerator while you make the chocolate glaze.
  6. For the chocolate glaze, melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips with 1 tbsp coconut oil in the microwave.
  7. Spoon the chocolate mixture into a plastic bag and seal the top. Cut off the tip of the plastic bag to make a mock piping bag to pipe the spider webs onto the cupcake.
  8. To decorate the cupcakes, first make sure the cakes are fully cooled. Remove them from the pan. Spread on about 2 tbsp of the orange buttercream onto the cupcake. Smooth out the top and the sides to your liking. Then, with the chocolate, pipe out three concentric circles onto the frosting. Then, using a toothpick, draw straight lines from the center of the cupcake to the edges. Make as many lines as you wish to make the spiderweb.
  9. Store in a cool place for up to 4 days.
