Insect cupcakes

Made these insect cupcakes for Aidan's big 5 birthday party today.
I'll be making a cake later on this week (on his real birthday) and will use these bugs again. I'll make some spider webs for the spiders then too.
Just thought I'd share the photos...

Very cool! I am ultra-impressed. You've got one lucky little boy.

Can you let us know how you made them? I'd love to copy

Great cupcakes, corazon - beautiful job!

Is Aiden the boy in a blue shirt, the baby in your avatar? And is the older boy in your avatar the kid in the camoflage shirt?

When did they get to be so big????
