Candy Corn Cupcakes are so fun and easy to make!
Are you getting tired of me telling you how much I love candy corn yet? It really isn’t even so much the taste of candy corn; Athough, I do love that too. But it’s just that candy corn is so cute! This recipe sat in my candy corn file for a year before I had a chance to make it. Yes, I have a file just for candy corn ideas!
Wednesday night I was asked to teach a cupcake class to some of the young women at church so I knew this was the perfect opportunity to make Candy Corn Cupakes.
Are these not the cutest things you have ever seen!?!?!?!?
Our Sweet Life’s version were done in mini cupcake tins but mine are full size.
I made a trip to our local decorating shop – The Decorette Shop and found some fun candy corn themed items. If you don’t have a local cake decorating shop you can find lots of fun things on line at Bake it Pretty including these fun candy corn looking cupcake liners I used.
You can use your favorite white or vanilla cupcake recipe or if you must use a white cake mix. I am still on the search for the perfect vanilla cupcake recipe. And I used my favorite buttercream frosting recipe for the frosting.
But here is the best part…..
You add food coloring to the batter and even the inside of the cupcake looks like candy corn!!!
You divide your cake batter in half, adding yellow to one and orange to the other. Add the yellow batter first into the cupcake liners and then freeze the batter for about 10 minutes and then add the layer of orange and bake! Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Does it get any cuter!!! Candy Corn cupcakes are sure to be the hit of any Halloween Party you have to attend this next week!
