Preparation Directions

  • HEAT oven to 350°F. Line 24 muffin cups with paper baking cups. Combine all cupcake ingredients in large bowl at low speed until moistened; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups.
  • BAKE 20 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely.
  • FROST tops of cupcakes with frosting. To form each body, take a large gum drop and press a piece of candy corn, large end down, into center of gum drop at an angle to resemble beak. Cut each red gum drop into 12 thin strips, about 1/4 inch long; press one strip below each beak to form "wattle." Place one completed gum drop in center of each cupcake. To form tail feathers, arrange about 5 candy corn pieces in half circle around edge of each cupcake, points toward center.
