Prep Time



Total Time






box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
teaspoons grated orange peel
Red and yellow food colors
container Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
tubes (0.68 oz each) Betty Crocker® black decorating gel
rolls Betty Crocker® Fruit by the Foot® chewy fruit snack, any green variety, or small green candies
  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place mini paper baking cup in each of 48 mini muffin cups. Make cake batter as directed on box--except stir in orange peel and 6 to 8 drops each red and yellow food colors. Divide batter evenly among cups, about 1 heaping tablespoonful each. Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 5 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely, about 10 minutes.
  2. In medium bowl, stir together frosting, 6 drops red food color and 8 drops yellow food color. Frost top of each cupcake. Using black gel, draw 2 triangles on each cupcake to look like pumpkin eyes, and draw a circle to look like a mouth.
  3. Cut fruit snack into 48 (1-inch) pieces; tightly roll each piece to make a stem for each pumpkin. Place stem at top of each pumpkin. Store loosely covered.

If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
