Candy Corn Cupcakes

Ahhhh LOVE these from the Rookie Chef. They mimic candy corn perfect and are easy to make!


One batch of favorite vanilla cupcakes
Yellow food dye
Orange food dye
Buttercream as white as you can make it

Make batter. Split in half and dye one batch yellow and one orange. Very carefully fill a 1/4-1/3 of the cupcake liner with yellow batter. Then carefully pour on the orange to fill to 1/2-3/4 full. Bake according to directions.
Let cool.
Make buttercream. Place a dollop on top and voila, candy corn cupcakes.
Best as minis or small cupcake size!

    Okay, I have tried these twice and the layers will not stay separate! They are still cute and fun, but I am so frustrated with them not looking the way they are supposed to!!! Any suggestions? I poured the orange batter on slowly and carefully and it seemed to rest on top, but as they bake, they mix up some. Pouring it on quickly doesn’t work either – immediate mixing. Wondering now about putting in fridge to set yellow before adding orange on top…. ??? Hoping to make them again next week for a party, so any help would be appreciated!
