    Mom2Rose's Note:

    I made these super easy cupcakes for my daughter's breakfast birthday party. These would be perfect for a summer gathering, kid's party, class treat, etc!! You can adjust the quantity to yield as many as you need. I made these with lemon frosting but you could use a white frosting and tint it yellow.

      I found the cutest candy corn (red, pink and white) and I remembered this recipe. I also had some left over plain M&M's that were in the pink breast cancer awareness, so I decided to make some Sunshine Valentines Day cupcakes for my sons daycare. They turned out sooooo cute. I also used valentines day liners and I used the "funfetti" cake mix, you know kids love that mix. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will be using it often.
