    These are cute. I made them for a kids' Spring party. I used two worms on each cupcake -- 1 across the middle, and 1 cut in half with each half sticking in opposite sides of the cupcake (looks like a worm going in under and coming out from under the other worm). The kids thought they were "cool." My cake mix yielded 18 cupcakes. I barely used 1 cup of "dirt" crumbs.  -  27 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a really dry cake - it needs something  -  13 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used this recipe with a vanilla/chocolate swirl cake mix and it was really, really good! Everyone at the Halloween party commented on how cute the cake was and they especially LOVED the taste. You can guarantee that this will be my signature Halloween dish. Thank you!  -  29 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
