Skull and Spiderweb Cupcake Decorations
After melting my melts, I piped my design freehand on a piece of wax paper. You could easily slip some clip-art or another design under the paper as a guide. When it dries, carefully peel the decoration from the wax paper and top your cupcake! For the spiderweb one, I piped the web onto a pretzel stick for some height in the decoration. These were done quickly so are a little messy. With care, you can execute some pretty intricate designs.
Here is a website with illustrated instructions on making a piping cone from parchment paper.
This is what I use for piping small amounts of something for decoration instead of using a big ol' plastic piping bag.
