Candy Corn Cupcakes
Kid-friendly, cute vanilla cupcake with candy corn. Perfect for non-scary halloween theme parties. INGREDIENTS 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature 3/4 cup sugar 2 large eggs 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup milk Yellow food coloring Red food coloring Yellow nonpareils, for garnish Orange nonpareils, for garnish Candy corn, for garnish Vanilla Buttercream Frosting 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature 3 cups confectioners' sugar 2 tablespoons milk 2 teaspoons vanilla extract INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12-cup standard muffin tin with paper liners; set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in egg, one at a time, until well combined. Beat in vanilla just until incorporated. With mixer on low speed, add dry ingredients and milk alternately in 3 parts, beginning and ending with dry ingredients, beating just until incorporated. Divide batter in half; tint one batch yellow with yellow food coloring and tint second batch orange by combining yellow and red food coloring. Scoop a spoonful of yellow batter evenly into the muffin tray. Top with orange batter to completely cover yellow batter. Place into oven and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until a tester inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack before frosting. In bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat butter and confectioners’ sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, approximately 1-2 minutes. With mixer on low speed, add milk and vanilla, beating just until incorporated. Increase speed to medium high and beat until frosting is light and fluffy, approximately 1-2 minutes. Use a small offset spatula or a pastry bag fitted with a decorative tip to frost cupcakes, garnished with nonpareils and candy corn, if desired.
