My office goes completely overboard for people’s birthdays. A girl at work has her birthday Friday so we are celebrating tomorrow with picnic-themed food. So, I made these corn-on-the-cob cupcakes tonight that I had seen a while back on Martha Stewart’s website. And I say “made” in the loosest of terms.
My sister-in-law had recommended I buy cupcakes at the grocery store, scrape the frosting off and then make the corn-on-the-cob (rather than do everything from scratch). It was such a great idea so that is exactly what I did!
They turned out pretty cute for not really paying attention (and using mini-cupcakes that had confetti candy all over them – hence the pops of pink, purple, green, etc. every once and awhile). I also bought four colors of Jelly Belly’s (coconut, buttered popcorn, lemon & banana) to get the multiple colored “kernels” and I used lemon Starbursts for the “butter.” I was actually watching American Idol while making these so I have to admit I wasn’t giving the project my full attention. Not as cute as Martha’s (especially since I couldn’t find the black sugar sprinkles for the pepper ~ they also would have worked better if I didn’t use mini-cupcakes) but they turned out cute for a 20 minute job!
