  • We used our standard vanilla frosting recipe directly from the packet of Low Carb Icing Mix ( 12 cupcakes)
  • Dark Choc Chips
  • Black food colouring


  • Ice your cupcakes using a knife or a spoon, try to kep the icing flat across the cupcake.
  • In the microwave, melt dark choc-chips. Add black food dye to chocolate and mix well (you can leave as a dark chocolate colour, without the black colouring if you like) Let the chocolate sit for 2 minutes to cool and thicken slightly.
  • Fill piping bag with narrow tip with black chocolate or alternatively fill ziplock bag and cut corner.
  • Pipe a black spiral on top of the cupcake.
  • Using a toothpick, drag the icing from the centre of the circles outwards to create a spider web design

HELPFUL TIP To fill your piping bag.  – Using a tall glass, place icing bag into glass and fold top of bag around rim of glass. This will keep your piping bag upright and allow you to have two hand to easily fill with icing and save on some mess.
