My son and husband love candy corn! I don’t feel one way of the other. I’ve been wanting to experiment with food color and cake batter for awhile so I thought I’d start with something simple and made these Candy Corn Cupcakes! No worries. You don’t have to like candy corn to love these easy to make vanilla cupcakes!
I started with a box of white cake mix. Prepare according to package directions. Once the batter is well mixed, divide into two bowls.
I use old fashioned liquid food coloring, not the gel. For the orange color, I used 4 drops of red and 16 drops of yellow. For the yellow, I just kept adding yellow food coloring until it reached the color I was happy with.
Fill the bottom third of the cupcake liners with the yellow batter. Add the orange batter on top of the yellow layer.
Bake according to the box instructions.
Add vanilla icing and a candy corn to garnish!
They turned out perfect and delicious! Store bought doesn’t have to be boring!
