Fourth of July is right around the corner and people all over the country will be wearing Red, White, and Blue bows and clothes and BBQ-ing all day!  

Need the perfect dessert?  I got you covered.  Introducing.....Corn on the Cob Cupcakes!  

This sweet treat is sure to "wow" all your guests.  If you look closely, you'll see this isn't real corn, it's of course cupcakes with jelly beans on top :) Y U M!!!!


Vanilla Frosting
Yellow liquid food coloring
24 Vanilla cupcakes, baked in white paper liners
3 1/2 cups small yellow, cream, and white Jelly Belly Jelly beans
4 pieces yellow Starbursts
1 Tbsp. black decorating sugar
1 Tbsp. white decorating sugar
8 sets of corn holders


1. Bake cupcakes
2. Color the frosting pale yellow with food coloring.
3.  Working with 3 cupcakes at a time, frost cupcakes with yellow frosting.  Arrange 5 rows of jelly beans, close together, on each cupcake.  Place the 3 cupcakes side by side on a corn dish or serving platter to resemble an ear of corn.  Repeat process with remaining cupcakes, frosting, and jelly beans.
4.  Cut the Starbursts into eight 1-inch squares.  Soften the edges by hand so they look like melted butter.  Place 1 square on top of each ear of corn.  Sprinkle with sugars.  Insert a corn holder in the end of each ear of corn.
