Corn on the cob cupcakesPosted: February 28, 2011
My H work was having a work bbq and dessert contest. I thought it would be fun to make some bbq themed desserts. I made my favorite slider cupcakes and these fun corn on the cob cupcakes from Hello Cupcakes! These were simple to make. Just bake up your favorite vanilla cupcakes and frost with your favorite butter cream tinted yellow. Once you have that you are ready to decorate your cupcakes like corn on the cob!
1 batch favorite vanilla cupcakes
1 batch vanilla frosting tinted yellow enough for 24 cupcakes
3 cups small yellow and white jelly beans
4 yellow laffy taffy or starburst
Black sugars optional-I omitted
Working with 3 cupcakes at a time, spread yellow frosting on top of each. Arrange about 5 rows of jelly beans, close together, on each cupcake. Place the 3 cupcakes side by side on a corn dish or serving platter. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes, frosting, and jelly beans.
Cut the fruit chews into eight 1 inch squares, and soften the edges slightly by hand so that they look melted. Place 1 square on top of each group of 3 cupcakes. Sprinkle with the sugars. Insert 1 corn holder, if using, in each of the end cupcakes.
