These simple vanilla cupcakes can easily be dressed up to resemble the layers of candy corn goodness, perfect for Halloween!
Ever since I started to blog full-time, I feel like I’ve gone a bit crazy. I’m at 2-3 grocery stores on a daily basis to find that perfect, ripe avocado, and now I’ve gotten into the habit of personally holding the avocados in my hand instead of throwing them into the shopping cart. You know I can’t have it bruised for the photos. And if I can’t find a certain ingredient, I’ll take extreme measures, like using the tortilla strips from a salad kit for my chicken tortilla soup.
But I might have done the craziest thing ever with these cupcakes here. See, I couldn’t find orange and yellow sprinkles so I took my stash of colored sprinkles and a tweezer to individually pick out the orange and yellow ones. But that’s not the end. I then strategically put each of these individual sprinkles on the frosting here. I figured, if I was crazy enough to pick each of them out, I might as well go all the way, right?
But aside from my neuroticness, let me tell you how fun these cupcakes are. It’s a simple vanilla based cupcake because well, I actually don’t really like candy corn, but with a little bit of food coloring, you could have a cute, orange and yellow layered cupcake so perfect for Halloween! Best of all, even non-candy corn lovers will go crazy over these!
