  • 1 package of black string lace licorice or black twist licorice cut into thin pieces (legs)
  • Optional: toothpick


  1. Use a box cake mix to bake your cupcakes by following the directions on the box. You can also bake from scratch if you are feeling adventurous.

    4. Use scissors to cut eight 4-inch pieces of licorice for the legs. Holding all of the legs together in a bunch, bend them in half and crease. Push the end of each leg into the cupcake as shown.
