I found it SO HELPFUL to prepare everything & lay it all out the counter in sections before beginning to decorate. Saved so much trouble of trying to stick my messy hand that would occasionally touch icing into a bag of candy! I also used regular black licorice; HOWEVER, they do NOT transfer easy if you're using one of those cupcake carriers to take them somewhere. The legs get in the way, so you lose a lot of space & I cut the licorice super short! :) SO... I made half spider cupcakes & then half the bat cupcakes (from this site). That way, there was only a spider cupcake every other space which made it easier to stick them in whatever pan you have. The skinny licorice stuck on the sides of the cupcakes instead of on top did help them stay on longer. Try the bat cupcakes b/c they're equally cute! I like the idea of just using black piping to create the full long leg look too. I mean...who likes to eat black licorice anyway? Oh wait, my husband ...but most people don't ;) Have fun with these and use different colored icing or even try a cupcake recipe (on this site) that has something gooey in the middle like peanut butter. They can be guts of the spider
