Candy Corn Halloween Cupcakes

Candy corn isn't just a candy, it's a symbol of Halloween! Whenever we see the white, orange and yellow we know it's that spooktacular time of the year.

To honor one of our favorite Halloween treats we created this cupcake - though it doesn't necessarily taste like candy corn, it certainly looks like the famous tri-colored treat.

  • white cake box mix
  • buttercream icing
  • yellow and orange food dye - if you don't have orange, make it using red and yellow.
  • candy corn for garnish

Make a white cake mix from a box.

Separate the batter in to two equal parts. Dye one portion yellow, the other orange.

Using a tablespoon, spoon the yellow cupcake batter into the bottom of the cupcake liners. You'll want to fill about 1/3 of the way. Follow by spooning the orange cake batter on top of this yellow layer and fill 2/3. Each cupcake liner should have 1/3 unfilled space on top.

Bake the cupcakes according to the box and allow to cool completely before decorating.

Fill a piping bag with buttercream icing and pipe a dollop on the top of each cupcake.

Using a butter knife or an uneven spatula, push down on each dollop lightly.

Garnish with a couple of candy corns and enjoy!
