Anyone can make cupcakes with a candy corn on top of the frosting but I wanted to try something new and create a candy corn inside of the cupcakes. Here are the marvelous results.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
  • Cake mixes (I used two different kinds because my friend wanted to make some for her work as well)
  • Eggs
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Frosting (I used whipped butter cream and chocolate)
  • Candy Corn
  • Food colorings

  • Mix batter as directed on the back of your boxes
  • Fill cupcake liners 2/3 rds the way up
  • Bake cupcakes according to the back of your box
  • When the timer goes off poke a toothpick through the cupcake. If it comes back clean they are done if not then bake for a few more minutes till the toothpick comes out clean
  • Remove from the oven and let cool in the cupcake tins for 5 minutes. Then take them off and place on the counter and let cool for an hour or till entirely cool.

  • Use your white frosting and divide it up into three separate bowls
  • use your food coloring to dye a bowl yellow, orange, and leave the last one white
  • An easy trick to put your icing into large plastic baggies is to put them in a cup and with a spatula fill up your bag with the frosting

  • To cut open your cupcakes take a sharp knife and at an angle cut around in a circle
  • When you are done remove the part you cut up. It should look like a triangle
  • Cut the triangle so you have a flat disc top
  • Your cupcakes are not ready to put the frosting in them
These look great!
