How to Make Easy Candy Corn Cupcakes

I first had the idea to make Candy Corn Cupcakes when I was making my son’s Camo Cupcakes for his army party. I just love the look of layered cupcakes – it is a fun way to dress up a regular cupcake mix without all the fuss!

The method is simple – just layer three spoonfuls of different colored cupcake mixes in your muffin tins – yellow on the bottom, orange in the middle, then white on the top. Bake for 20 minutes and once cool you can decorate them with frosting, sprinkles and candy corns! It doesn’t get any easier than that!
