Ok, by now you all know how much of a fan I am when it comes to cupcakes! I added a little touch of prettiness to the Summertime Flower Cupcakes, Put a little bit of booze in the Mocha Cupcakes with Kaluah Frosting, and added a bunch of crunchy goodness to the Cinnamon Coffee Cake Cupcakes. Now it’s time to add in some fun! These adorable Candy Corn Cupcakes are so easy to make, you will be amazed. Ok, maybe amazed is a strong word. You will be pleasantly pleased how simple these are to make. With Halloween and Thanksgiving right around the corner, they will be perfect for any fall dessert table.

If you can mix up a box cake mix, you can make these fun and adorable Candy Corn Cupcakes!
Here is what you will need ….
1 box yellow cake mix
Ingredients on the box mix you purchased
yellow liquid food coloring
red liquid food coloring
paper cupcake liners
1 can vanilla frosting
sprinkles, candy, toppings (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare cake mix as directed on the back of the box. Add in 11 drops of yellow food coloring. Mix well so there are no streaks.
Spoon yellow batter into cupcake liners 1/3 of the way up.
Add in 7 drops of red food coloring to the already yellow cake batter. (yellow and red make orange!) Mix well.
If you would like your orange more on the red side, add in a couple drops of red at a time to adjust the color. If it is to red, add a few more drops of yellow. Until you find your desired color.
Spoon the orange cake batter on top of the yellow cake batter so it fills the cupcake liners 2/3 full. Do not over fill.
Bake in a 350 degree oven 15 – 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let your cupcakes cool completely before frosting.
Top your cupcakes with white frosting and sprinkles if desired.
We topped some of ours with chocolate sprinkles and some with green candy sugar.
Serving up these super cute Candy Corn Cupcakes were so much fun! The teens loved them too. I mean they are cupcakes, who doesn’t love cupcakes?!
