Corney Cupcakes

This is the last week for the Cupcake Challenge on Hoosier Homemade, and the theme is candy. I had to post about these Corney Cupcakes I made recently for a BBQ because they were a hit.



The inspiration was the "Corn on the Cob" cupcakes from my favorite book Hello, Cupcake!



My version is made with funfetti cupcakes, creamy butter cream frosting and assorted jellybeans. I let the kids pick the jelly beans and they seem to recall that the corn we buy isn't always all yellow, so they got different shades.



I didn't have black decorating sugar for the "pepper" or square candy for the "butter", but am still happy with how they turned out. I set them all up in a basket on the buffet table and everyone was very impressed!
