Start by making the cupcakes according to the box.
Once the cupcakes are cooled, you can begin frosting. With a star shape frosting tip, start by adding a dab of frosting in the middle of the cupcake. Make the frosting look hairy by lifting up an leaving a tail to the star shape. Next frost around this first dab and continue around until the cupcake is covered.
If you are using licorice wheels, unroll the wheel and cut at the length you would like your spider legs to be. Separate down the middle where the licorice is segmented, so you will have 2 skinny spider legs.
Stick the end of the licorice with the poky side of the toothpick, and stick the toothpick into the cupcake. Add four legs to each side.
Dab a black bit of frosting on to two of the Smartie or Neccos, to make eyes.
To finish, place the eyes onto the cupcake.
