Corny Cupcakes by The Picky Eater

It was the 4th of July, and the Picky Eater wanted to make dessert.  As any self-respecting mom, I, of course, have copies of Woman’s Day laying about the house, and the Picky Eater, for the first time ever, picked up one with a melon granita on top, and began to talk about how much she wanted to make one.  We discussed what we had in the house, and realized that we really didn’t have any of the necessary ingredients.  So, I told her to look at some of the other magazines laying around, and she found another edition of Woman’s Day which had these crazy corn-like cupcakes on the cover.  And this is what she wanted to make.

Since we were doing much better on ingredients for this one, we decided to proceed.

First, she gathered all the ingredients, and read the directions twice.

Mixing the ingredients is hard work:

Although we had bought extra icing as back up, she decided that we should really make the Brown Butter frosting. So, while the cupcakes baked, we made icing.

And then, of course, we needed to add the “kernels” and the “butter pats.”

And, they were amazing and perfect and consumed rapidly prior to the fireworks….

For those of you who might be interested in making your own, the full recipe can be found here.
