Indian Corn Cupcakes

I have a confession … I’m loosing it … “it” being my mind.

For some reason I thought that I came up with a new and brilliant idea … I didn’t … I Googled it … found many images of Indian Corn Cupcakes.

This may be a project that would involve the kids … but let me tell you that those little candies were slipping out of my fingers and onto the floor … some into my mouth.  So I’ll leave that decision up to you!

I am sharing my idea anyway … it’s not new or brilliant … but I still like it …

This past summer, I meant to save corn husks from corn on the cob and let them dry … I forgot … so I went to the store and bought some.  I did use my glue gun to help hold the husks in place while I tied the ribbon …

Now for the fun part … the cupcakes.  This is what you will need … cupcakes, frosting in a pastry bag fitted with a #10 tip, M&M’s (autumn colors or Reese’s Pieces) and a spatula …

Squeeze the frosting across the cupcakes to form the “ear of corn” … fill in with frosting …

Use a spatula (or the back of a spoon) to spread the frosting …

Start arranging the M&M corn kernels … I did lay them on a slant, trying to cover up some of the frosting …

Continue until you fill up the entire ear of corn …

For these three ears of corn I used …

  • 9 cupcakes
  • 3/4 cup of frosting
  • 3/4 cup M&M’s (Reese’s Pieces would work too)

♦   My lesson of the day … don’t store the decorated cupcakes in the refrigerator … the M&M’s change color … it’s not pretty.  I learned the hard way … I told you that I was loosing it 🙂

I ♥ your comments!

  1. Those are the cutest things but when I first glanced at them, I was thinking eclairs and not cupcakes. (haven’t had my morning coffee yet)

  3. These are still on my mind and was thinking about them this morning.
    I was thinking maybe using Twinkies as the ears. They are small and wouldn’t take much for candy or time to cover them little ‘ears’ of corn
