Candy Corn Cupcakes

This recipe first appeared on my other blog, but since I'm no longer maintain that one I'm sharing my favorites here!

Ready for a cute Halloween treat?

Candy Corn Cupcakes!!!

They’re actually just a simple white cake tinted three different colors and decorated with candy corns – it doesn’t get much easier.

To make these, line 2 muffin tins with paper liners (24).  Take your favorite white cake mix (my favorite white for cupcakes is listed below) and use a small scoop (about 1 tablespoon) to drop some white batter into each muffin cup.

Next, tint all of the remaining cake batter yellow with gel food coloring.  Then, use the small scoop to add yellow batter directly on top of the white in each muffin cup.

Last, tint all of the remaining yellow batter orange with gel food coloring.  Split the orange batter evenly between the muffin cups, directly on top of the yellow batter.  Bake according to package directions and frost as desired, decorating with candy corns!  That’s it!

Happy Halloween!
