Spider webs and chocolate chips

We have a crazy week this week so Cannon specially requested today because he wants to make this delivery tomorrow but we don't have time to bake it tomorrow. Sticking with his chocolate chip theme he decided on Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with spider web frosting.
They are getting good at getting the mixer all set up!

Cannon measuring the flour like we learned at Little Chef's Academy.

MMMMMM, that is some tasty cupcake batter (must be the buttermilk we substituted for milk)

Look how cute the cupcake wrappers are (Walmart in the Halloween section).

Viv needed a little more leverage to beat the frosting so she sat on the floor.

Cannon working some spider web magic.
