‘Corn on the Cob’ cupcakes

From Hello, Cupcake!: Irresistibly Playful Creations Anyone Can Make. the minute I saw these in the book I knew that I had to make them. Seeing as how I love food that looks like…other food, I thought these would be hilarious for a birthday.

yellow gel dye
2 cups yellow (various colors) jelly bellys
yellow starburst
black sanding sugar
white sanding sugar
corn cob holders

Since these cupcakes are yellow I used a lemon cupcake. I decided to go with a plain vanilla frosting and I tinted it with yellow gel dye. I only use gel dye. Liquid dye is just awful – don’t even go there.

I frosted the cooled cupcakes and started to place the jelly bellys, alternating the colors in rows, about 4-5 rows per cupcake. Once I had three done, I stuck in the corn cob holders on the ends.

I took the yellow Starburst and softened it a little until it looked like melted butter. Starburst is a fantastic for decorating, I never would have thought of it until I saw this book. They made great blankets for my baby shower cupcakes.

Put the little piece of ‘butter’ on one of the cupcakes, then sprinkle with black and white sanding sugar. That is what REALLY makes the difference here. You can’t help but look twice, because it really looks like salt and pepper!

These things were so fun to make and when I took them to the party everyone thought it was fun and hilarious. Also: delicious. Try them yourself, your friends will get a kick out of it!

    Where did you find the bag of Jelly beans that you had for the corn cob cupcakes? I had to buy like 17 dollars worth of mixed jelly beans from a candy shop.

    Yeah, I just had to mix and match at a candy store. Sometimes you’ll get lucky and find a ‘yellow’ mix pre-packaged bag, but I haven’t seen that in a while.

    Candy shops will sell the Jelly bellys in only the Buttered Popcorn flavor so I can only imagine that just ramps the realism as well.
