Ingredients
  • Cupcakes:
  • 1 box devil's food cake mix
  • 1 1/2 cups cola
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • Frosting:
  • 2 cans ready-to-spread white frosting
  • 20 drops yellow food coloring
  • 10 drops red food coloring
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons orange extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • Garnish:
  • 48 candy worms
  • 1/2 package chocolate cookies, crushed
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Place cupcake papers in muffin pans. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, cola, eggs, and oil. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping sides of bowl often. Fill cupcake papers 2/3 full with cake batter. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cool completely on cooling racks before frosting.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine frosting, food colorings, orange extract and sifted powder sugar. Spoon frosting into a pastry bag or zip-top bag fitted with a 1/4-inch round decorating tip. Pipe the frosting on the cupcake by starting at the outside edge, circling twice and than working toward the center.

Finish cupcakes by sticking 2 candy worms into frosting and sprinkling tops with crushed cookies.
