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.
Fun to make
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.
so easy to make and kids and adults love them
Simple to make and fun to eat! These added just the right touch to my daughter's rainbow-themed birthday party!
