This recipe that I found via makes 24 cupcakes or 8 'corn cobs'.





  • any store bought Vanilla Frosting
  • Yellow liquid food coloring
  • 24 Vanilla Cupcakes (you can use store bought cake food mix), baked in white paper liners
  • 3 1/2 cups small yellow, cream, or white jelly beans, such as Jelly Belly
  • 4 pieces yellow fruit chews, such as Laffy Taffys or Starbursts
  • 1 tablespoon black decorating sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white decorating sugar
  • 8 sets of corn holders (optional)


  1. Color the frosting pale yellow with food coloring.
  2. 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.

3.  Cut the fruit chews into eight 1-inch squares. Soften the edges slightly by hand so that they look like melted butter.
