Anyway...if you are going to a Halloween Party and need a last minute treat, might I suggest these...I fell in love with them the SECOND I saw them on Our Best Bites. I knew I had to make them:) I'm not going to lie to you...they turned out AMAZING! Love the effect they make!
So he decided for me which one I was going to cut in half so you can see how awesome these look!
Candy Corn Cupcakes
For the technique, check the tutorial out on Our Best Bites
My recipe for the cake:
1 box white cake mix (Duncan Hines)
1 small box vanilla INSTANT pudding
1/2 c. oil
1 c. water
Mix together on low for 30 seconds and then on medium-high for 2 minutes. (Just like what the box says). Then get 2 bowls and put half the batter in each bowl. Tint one bowl yellow and the other bowl orange. Then fill your cupcake liners with half the yellow batter and half the orange batter. Bake according to box.
Frosting: (Don't mind all the butter and shortening:) It's good, Promise!!)
1 stick salted butter
1 stick unsalted butter
1 c. Crisco
2 lb. powdered sugar
1 TBS vanilla
3-4 TBS milk
Cream butter and crisco together until smooth, add powdered sugar and vanilla, gradually add the milk. Mix until smooth.
