Easy Candy Corn Cupcakes

Love these easy peasy candy corn cupcakes for Halloween!

Start with your favorite cake recipe, or even a boxed cake mix will do fine.

Whip up a batch of buttercream icing and divide in three.  Leave one batch white, color one batch yellow, and color the last batch orange.

Using tip # 1A by Wilton pipe a layer of yellow icing on each cupcake

add a layer of orange icing starting just inside the edge of the yellow

finally top with a layer of white icing, again starting just inside the edge of the orange


Easy as 1, 2 3!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my 31 days of baking project.  And I cannot thank you enough for following along and helping me find my purpose and place in the blog world!  Baking is a passion of mine that has been festering for years and I am so glad to have an outlet to share it with you.

My blogging journey has just begun and I sincerely hope you will continue to follow as I share both my love of baking and my passion for creating a welcoming home!

There are several recipes that you’ve posted that I want to try. Now that 31 days of posting has eased up maybe I’ll get around to trying some. There seem to always be someone willing to try a new baking item. 🙂
