Melt Cocoa Dark candy coating and pour into a squeeze bottle. Use marker and piece of paper to draw spider leg pattern. Place spider leg pattern under parchment paper and trace the pattern using the melted coating. Allow coating to set completely before removing from parchment paper. For glaze: Combine 16 oz. candy coating, 1/2 cup whipping cream, and 6 tablespoons butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 25 seconds. Stir. Place in microwave for a few seconds at a time until ingredients are warmed and chocolate is melted. Do not overheat. Remove from microwave and stir until glaze is shiny and all ingredients are well blended. Place cupcake on cooling rack. Spoon glaze over cupcake to completely cover. While glaze is still wet, sprinkle chocolate jimmies over glaze. Using a #10 tip and a pastry bag, fill bag with chocolate buttercream. Pipe 8 balls of buttercream around the glazed cupcake to hold the legs in place and one large ball in front of the glazed cupcake for the spider’s head. Place icing eyes on large ball of buttercream.
