    To Create Bats: Place 1 candy kiss at an angle on each cupcake for bat head. Attach 2 red cinnamon candies for eyes with the gel. Add 2 sliced almonds for ears. Cut chocolate wafers in half with sharp knife. Pipe straight edges with decorator gel; dip in sprinkles. Don't put the cookies on until serving time, place on for wings.(frosting may absorb too much moisture.)
