Candy Corn Cupcakes

 It's almost HALLOWEEN!!  I don't know about you, but we have a million Halloween Parties this weekend!  I love them!!  I love to bake for them, decorate...but for some reason I am always LAME when it comes to the costume.  My boys ALWAYS change their mind right before the party and then it is complete CHAOS trying to put something together!  One year I will be creative and get my act together and do some AMAZING costumes...one day:)

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!

 My little helper...Connor...16 months old could NOT resist the candy corn.  He was going crazy stuffing the ones on the plate into his mouth.  I had to act quick before he did this...
So he decided for me which one I was going to cut in half so you can see how awesome these look!

Ta-DA!!  Hope you all have a safe and Happy Halloween!!

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
4 eggs
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.
