Day 135... Candy Corn Cupcakes

Tonight the kids attempted to make candy corn cupcakes. The recipe yellow cake mix, half dyed orange. Fill the bottom of the cupcake liner with yellow batter then top with orange batter. Bake, cool, and then top with icing and candy corns. The kids had fun and the cupcakes were yummy.

Not exactly Martha Stewart quality when it came to the making of the recipe or the results but they tried and that is what matters right? The more they try the better they will get at it. Our tip: Fill the cupcake lower than usual. Ours were way too big and overflowed which ruined the candy corn look.

The kids love measuring and pouring the ingredients.
Sometimes they love it so much that the ingredients don't make it in the bowl. OOPS!
Maddie excited for the results.
Makenna is always a willing taste tester. The sweeter the better!!
The results..
Love a man who bakes!!


  1. So, what you're saying is bigger is not always better?? Hmmmm..... :-) They're still way cute, and the bakers all look pleased. That's what counts.

  2. FUNNY Liz.. Yes in this case Bigger was not better. They were yummy just did not have quite the look we were going for. :)
