Candy Corn Cupcakes

Holiday quotation: “Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble.” –Shakespeare
For me, Halloween is not complete without decorative desserts like cute spider web cookies and oreo mud pie! Although definitely not a baker, my mom would always make rice crispy treats, wrapped in orange cellophane and packaged in a giant witch’s cauldron, to donate to my elementary school’s “Halloween Haunt” bake sale. I loved the treats so much, that half of them would “vanish” even before they arrived at school! I’ve recently discovered (or re-discovered!) how much I love the presentation/decoration side of baking, so enjoy the chills and thrills of this year’s Halloween with these amazing candy corn cupcakes! Of course, the cupcake is light, moist, and delicious, and the frosting is too sweet to resist! I loved experimenting with the design; if you look closely at the pictures, you can see the 4 different cupcake liners I used in the process! Have fun with sprinkles, candy corn, M&M‘s and colored frosting in your design undertaking! I “witch” all of you a Happy Halloween! Enjoy!!

Banana Split Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

Last Spring break, when my family visited Washington D.C. during our east coast college tour, we would see people on every single block carrying pink cupcake boxes embellished with black and white star designs. About 4 months later, I was browsing Netflix and, because of my recent history of watching Ace of Cakes, a new reality show called Georgetown Cupcakes was in my recommendations list, “A show about Georgetown Cupcakes, DC’s destination for designer cupcakes, and its owners”. In one of their cupcake challenges, this amazing ice cream cone cupcake was born! This cupcake, baked in the cone, is such a delicious combination of tasty crunch and moist cake, especially with my favorite funfetti cake recipe! It’s absolutely the cutest and most creative cupcake I’ve ever seen, and the super sweet toppings even taste as good as their mouth-watering appearance! For me, the decoration process is the best part; you can make your own personalized sundae using your favorite cupcake recipe and toppings of your choice! Enjoy!!!
