October Cupkins: Candy Corn Cupcakes!

It's the first Monday of the month (how did it get to be October already?!) and it's time for October's edition of Cupkins, and our first-ever Cupkins link party!  Woohoo!  I can't wait to see all of your creations!  This month's theme is Halloween, and Meg and I have each created some spooky cupcakes to share with you!  Check out my Candy Corn Cupcakes below, then head over to MegaCrafty to see Meg's Cauldron Cupcakes, and link up YOUR Halloween themed cupcake and muffin recipes, decorating ideas, etc.  Enjoy!

To make Candy Corn Cupcakes, bake a batch of your favorite flavor of cupcake.  I chose chocolate for mine, and used an abridged box mix (combine dry contents of box mix + 1 cup water + 3 eggs + 1 stick of melted butter) for consistency.  Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full and bake at 350 degrees for approx. 15 minutes.  (You can't see very clearly, but even my cupcake liners have candy corn on them!)

Whip up some vanilla frosting (recipe here) and use a 2D tip on a large piping bag to frost.  Starting on the outside edge, pipe two swirls of frosting, one directly on top of the other, leaving a hole in the center.  Fill hole with as much candy corn as you can!

 Add orange and yellow sprinkles for the perfect finish, and enjoy!

Happy Halloween!

This is wonderful! I never thought that cupcake could be that artistic. I am going to try to make some this week. This is also a good idea for my son's first birthday :) Thanks!
