Candy Corn Cupcakes

Happy early Halloween! I love making treats! I have fond memories of baking on Sunday afternoons with my mom. I still have those desires, but I end up with a kitchen full of treats and no one to eat them. Curse my metabolism! Anyways, I chose Candy Corn Cupcakes as my Halloween cupcake experiment.
I decided to try out my mini cupcake tin. I figured that since I would be using a lot of frosting on each cupcake, I should make them small. I used a yellow cake mix and vanilla frosting. I separated the frosting into two bowls and dyed one bowl yellow and the other bowl orange. I made sure to refrigerate the frosting because it was losing its shape as it got warmer. I topped the cupcake with a little squirt of whipped cream. The whipped cream didn't work as well as I had hoped because it melted after just a few minutes. Overall, these cupcakes turned out ok. Maybe next year I will make some scary ones instead.
Lucky for me, I have another event that I need to bake cupcakes for! I am also in the mood for some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I may be on a sugar high for the next week or so!
