Corn on the Cob Cupcakes

In Cupcakes on January 21, 2010 at am

I saw these on the Martha Stewart website and  decided to make them for a summer bbq with my ultimate frisbee team.  I discovered that buying individual colours of Jelly Belly jelly beans can get Very expensive so I didn’t buy enough to decorate my cupcakes the way I would have wanted to, but I still think they were pretty cute.   For these cupcakes, I tried a vanilla cupcake recipe that used cake flour (my first time working with cake flour) and discovered that I really don’t like the crumbly texture that you get with cake flour, or at least not in cupcakes. Everyone else seemed to really like them though.

I bought the corn on the cob holders from a local house and hardware store.   I used white and yellow Jelly Belly jelly beans and vanilla buttercream frosting (next time, I will tint it yellow with icing dye).  For the “butter”, I warmed up yellow Starbursts in the microwave for a few seconds and shaped them slightly with my fingers.
