Mini Candy Corn Cupcakes {in a shot glass}

Loving all things orange this season? Me too. My recent fall baking endeavor had me mixing up some candy corn cupcakes and topping them with the new Cool Whip Frosting. DELICIOUS! Check them out.

My class is having a Halloween party in a few weeks and I’ve been brainstorming what I might contribute to the spread…and it will be quite the spread from what I’ve heard :o) Trying to stick with the Halloween theme I thought these candy corn cupcakes would be the perfect treat. And with them being small (in a shot glass) they are perfect for little fingers…

I knew I would need several supplies I don’t keep readily on hand, so I ran by WalMart to pick up everything I would need for this sweet treat. I picked up cupcake mix, candy corn, pumpkin spice, and of course Cool Whip’s new cream cheese frosting {also in vanilla and chocolate}.

{Check out the rest of my shopping trip here.}

The baking is simple since this eye catching treat follows basic cupcake protocol, so let’s spend most of our time focusing on the presentation.

After mixing the the cupcake ingredients I divided the batter in half. One bowl I left the classic yellow cake color, but to the other I added three drops of red food coloring. And now we have orange…

Since I was using mini shot glasses to house these candy corn cupcakes I used a mini muffin pan to cook the orange and yellow cupcakes. Putting these creations together is as easy to 1-2-3.

I used two yellow and two orange mini cupcakes per candle votive shot glass. I pulled apart the cake to help fill the space.

After letting the #CoolWhipFrosting thaw & the cupcakes cool I topped it off with the”knife technique.” Can I be honest here….I licked the knife when I finished. The frosting is delicious. Just the right amount of fluffiness and sweetness.

Last but not least sprinkle with some pumpkin spice & top with a piece of candy corn.

I have to doubt the kids will love them, but they might have to fight a few paws before they are able to enjoy!
