This week it’s all about the Halloween cupcakes folks. I’ll highlight a different cupcake each day that I made for Celebrations. First up, the easiest ever cupcake decoration: Smashed up candy corn to turn any cupcake into a candy corn cupcake. That’s it.
how to make candy corn cupcakes for Halloween
- Disposable decorating bag
- Size “12” decorating tip
- Rubber band
- Candy corn
- Zip-top bag
- Mallet or hammer
Step 1: Place a couple handfuls of candy corn in a zip-top bag. Use the mallet or hammer to crush the candy. Be sure to place the bag over a cutting board or towel to prevent damage to the surface beneath. Set aside.
Step 2: Prepare your favorite cupcakes according to the recipe and let cool completely.
Step 3: Prepare frosting according to your favorite recipe, or, use store-bought frosting. (TIP: To thicken store-bought frosting so it’s easier to pipe, stir in confectioner’s sugar until the desired consistency is reached.) Fit a decorating bag with the tip, fill with frosting, and close tightly with a rubber band.
Step 4: Working with one cupcake at a time, pipe a swirl to cover the top of the cupcake with frosting. Immediately coat with crushed candy corn.
