Prepare cupcakes according to packet directions. Let cool completely.
Cut liquorice laces into 8cm sections. Working with one or two cupcakes at a time, so the icing doesn't set before decorating, ice the cupcakes with the white icing. Insert liquorice pieces into the outer edges of the cupcakes to make the legs of the spider, 3 legs on each side (4 take up too much space). Make eyes and fangs out of the other lollies in the scariest way possible. Repeat with remaining cupcakes.
