It appears you can use candy corn for other than trick or treating. This cute sunshine cupcake from Taste of Home, is so very simple, yet turns out so fun! They even suggest using a lemon cake mix to make it more like sunshine!
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) lemon cake mix
1 can (16 ounces) vanilla frosting
Yellow food coloring
Miniature semisweet chocolate chips, red shoestring licorice and candy corn
Prepare and bake cake batter according to package directions for cupcakes; cool completely.
In a small bowl, tint frosting yellow. Frost cupcakes. Press two chocolate chips into each cupcake for eyes. For mouths, cut licorice into 1-in. pieces; bent slightly to curve. Press one licorice piece into each cupcake. Add candy corn around edges of cupcakes. Yield: 2 dozen.
