Step-By-Step

1Heat oven 350. Place paper cupcake liners in cupcake pans. I used a lg 6 count cupcake pan along with a smaller 12 count pan. Lightly spray the cupcake liners w/ cooking spray.

2In lg bowl, w/ mixer on med-high, mix cake mix and called for ingredients, adding vanilla to mix. Divide batter into 2 separate bowls equally. Drop in 30 drops yellow food coloring to one bowl and whisk until smooth.

3Drop in remainder yellow food coloring and the red food coloring to 2nd bowl and whisk until smooth. Fill cupcake liners 1/3-way full w/ yellow batter. then spoon about 1/2 orange batter onto top of yellow batter until the cups are 2/3-full. Bake as directed. It took about 15 mins for the small pan and 18 mins for the lg pan in my oven. Cool, take cupcakes and set them on a platter. frost, sprinkle w/ desired colored sprinkles. Top w/ several candy corns.
