Corn on the Cob Cupcakes

Farming Treats

When I saw these cupcakes on Mabel's Label blog I knew I had to share. Now she doesn't give a tutorial on them, but I figured I came up with a shopping list to make these fun treats. They would be perfect for a farm or barnyard birthday.

Corn on the cob cupcakes

Necessary supplies:

Cupcakes - A white or yellow cake mix 
Cupcake liners - yellow
Kernels - Jelly Belly jelly beans would be my favorite (they are also more slender than regular jelly beans, probably not going to keep you figure slender)
Butter - yellow Starburst candies 
Corn Holder - just use the real thing


You can't forget about the cow cupcakes. These are much easier than you look. You bake the cupakes, and the purchase the fondant cow topper from TwoSugarBabies on Etsy. I wonder if they would make brown cows or little baldy cows. Those are the solid colored cows with just a little bit of white on their faces.

Blogger Diary of Dave's Wife threw a really cure Barn Yard Birthday for her son. Check out her blog for lots of ideas.


I love the menu that they served. 

This weekend I am headed to the Boy's farm in Iowa. Saturday is wedding planning day, and Sunday we'll spend at a cattle show. And don't worry when I get back I'll have another Corn Report. Any guesses on how tall the corn is now?

p.s. Don't forget to refollow (or follow for the first time) my blog since I made a change in url. The old blog will be gone soon.

  1. she must have slightly melted the starbursts. I would try replicating this with those mini loaf pans to get a better shape.
