Let’s CREEP it real, Halloween may look a little different this year. But that won’t stop us from eating, drinking and being scary.

INGREDIENTS (makes 24 cupcakes):


  1. Prepare cupcakes according to box directions. You can also cut this recipe in half if you just want 12 cupcakes. 
  2. Take out the cool whip and let it defrost at room temperature.
  3. Cool the cupcakes completely. 
  4. In a medium bowl, add the fluffy white frosting and the cool whip.. 
  5. Add your Sambucol Elderberry Syrup and mix with a spatula. Just enough to combine and for the color to mix. 
  6. If you want it to be more purple, add a drop of blue and red food coloring. Keep adding, one drop at a time, until you reach your desired color. 
  7. Frost your cupcakes with a frosting knife in an even layer. Make it almost flat. 
  8. With the black icing, starting in the center of the cupcake with a dot and add 3 circles. One at a time. See pic for visual. 
  9. With a toothpick, starting from the center of the cupcake and going towards the edges, pull one line at a time. You will do so about 6-8 times. Creating that spider web look. See photos below. 
  10. Decorate with spider rings and enjoy.
