How to Make Candy Corn Swirl Cupcakes
You will need:
- Best Buttercream Frosting
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring
- Decorating Bags
- Wilton 2D Decorating Tip
The key to these delicious Candy Corn Swirl Cupcakes is our Best Buttercream Frosting recipe. You will find the recipe and directions here. We split the batch of frosting into thirds. The first third we left white. We tinted the rest of the Best Buttercream Frosting yellow and orange.
We loaded the frosting into pastry bags with Wilton 2D Decorating Tips. Now you need a cupcake. We made our cupcakes from a chocolate cake mix and used black cupcake liners.
First step, add a dollop of yellow frosting in the middle of the cupcake.
Using a Wilton 2D frosting tip, make two full circles of yellow frosting around the edge of the cupcake. If you need a little help on how to swirl on the frosting … check out our How to Frost the Perfect Cupcake post that has a video showing how to swirl on the frosting just like this.
Next, use the Wilton 2D frosting tip with the orange frosting. Apply another circle of frosting but it should be a little smaller than the yellow frosting layer as shown in the picture above.
Lastly, a final circles of white frosting, this time swirling the top up into a peak.
These Candy Corn Swirl Cupcakes are so pretty and they look just like Candy Corn. And they could not be easier to make.
