Candy Corn Cupcakes

The other night I was in the mood for a cupcake and decided to try this idea I found on Pinterest.  I didn't go in and look at a recipe or anything so not sure how those were  made, but I decided it would be easy to use a white cake mix to make these.  These were simple and oh so yummy!!  If you're looking for a special treat for that Halloween or Harvest party, look no further!!

 Start by making a white cake mix according to package directions.  In a small bowl, place 2 1/2 cups of batter ( I used two but recommend  using more- I will next time).  Tint that batter yellow.  Tint the remaining batter orange.  Using a small cookie scoop, ladle a heaping scoopful into cups.

 I used a medium cookie scoop to do the orange.  Bake according to package directions.

Cool completely!!

 Frost with your favorite buttercream.  I used Wilton's recipe.

 Garnish with a piece of candy corn!!

So adorable!!!
