{ Candy Corn Cupcakes }


Candy Corn Cupcakes… sorta.

Let me preface this by saying:
I. HATE. CANDY. CORN.
Please don’t throw it at me. Waxy sugar. Just not my thing.

However, I appreciate how pretty it is.

Preeeeeeeetty.

And how “fall” it feels. 

Fall is my favorite season. HUZZAH! for Fall.

(Sorry, I was recently at the Renaissance Festival and haven’t quite gotten it all out of my system. Be glad this recipe isn’t for Pottage & giant turkey legs)

I live in the country, so when the leaves start to fall, I love the smell of it. That’s weird, right? ‘Sok, weird is my normal.

I love the crisp air, the clear blue skies, the harvest taking place. I love hayrides and weenie roasts, pumpkin eating and pumpkin carving.

Huzzah for Fall!

What do you mean, I already said that?

Candy corn is pretty synonymous with my favorite season, so, I tolerate it. As a decoration.

I decided to make some cupcakes that LOOK like candy corn. NOT taste like. Look like.

You’ll need a white cake mix or recipe, orange food coloring (or yellow and red to make orange), and yellow food coloring.
Divide your batter out into bowls. You can do it evenly, or have the orange be a little larger, like in the corn itself.
Yellow, then orange, then white.
In this picture I’ve shown the progress.

Please don’t judge me for my cupcake pans. They are clean, I swears it.

Then, bake!
Let cool, and top with a buttercream icing. And.. if you must… a candy corn. 

Blergh.

That’s it! 

Pretty, right?

So, while these cupcakes LOOK like candy corn, they do not, thank Sweet Aunt Myrtle, taste like it.
