MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 21, 2012

i made this as a fun side dessert for Thanksgiving. While cute and easy to make, the candy corn seemed to melt or break off ? not sure what happened. It was mostly the candy corns like in the picture, and i also had some of the "autumn" colored candy corns, they didn't do this for some reason. very strange. But the cupcakes were good and they were a fun dessert.

My kids and their friends loved these! They were actually easy enough that I let the kids make them themselves. Just adorable. Only thinkg is - not all kids like lemon cake, but you can substitute yellow cake mix.
