"This is an ingenious cupcake! The unique orange and black together is fabulous. The best part about this thing is not only how decorative it is but how great it taste. The addition of sour cream makes them not taste like cake mix. We did used regular candy corn and chocolate frosting. As a volunteer field editor for taste of home magazine I love recipes that take a creative twist!"
