Last week I purchased a bag of those delightful candy corn pumpkins that can only be bought this time of year. They are 100% sugar and my munchkins swarm to them like moths to a flame.
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
These cupcakes can be whipped up in a flash. All you need is candy corn pumpkins, vanilla frosting, food coloring, and some Vince Guaraldi tunes.
Green decorator's sugar, which has been in the Christmas aisles since August, adds a nice touch.
24 cupcakes, any flavor, baked and cooled
2 containers vanilla frosting
green food coloring
green decorator's sugar
1 bag Brach's Candy Corn Pumpkins
Frost cupcakes with vanilla frosting. I speak for munchkins everywhere when I ask you to please frost generously.
In a small bowl, add a few drops green food coloring to approximately 1/2 icing from one container. Mix until icing is a nice shade of green.
Spoon 1 tablespoon green icing on top of each cupcake, and spread with a fork to create "grass".
Sprinkle "grass" with green sugar.
Top each cupcake with pumpkin.
Simple. Easy. Fun.
