How to Make Candy Corn Cupcakes


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Line 2 12 cup muffin tins with white paper liners.
  3. Combine all ingredients except for food coloring in a large bowl and beat on low speed for 1 minute.
  4. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and then beat on medium for 2 additional minutes.
  5. Divide batter equally into two bowls, you should have about 2 1/4 to 1/2 cups of batter in each bowl.
  6. Mix about 1/2 heaping teaspoon of yellow coloring into one bowl of batter and 1/2 teaspoon orange coloring into the other bowl.
  7. Divide the yellow batter evenly among the muffin tins. I used a standard cookie scoop, which measures about 1 tablespoon.
  8. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes in the pan and then allow to cool completely on a cooling rack.
  10. When ready, frost the cupcakes and garnish with a candy corn.
