Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 18 regular-size muffin cups. In medium bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt; set aside.

    In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter with electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds. Gradually add granulated sugar, about 1/4 cup at a time, beating well after each addition, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat 2 minutes longer. Beat in 1 teaspoon maple flavor and the eggs. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture, about one-third at a time, and 3/4 cup milk, about half at a time, beating just until blended.
  • 3
    Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each with about 3 tablespoons batter or until about two-thirds full.
  • 4
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans; place on cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 5
    In medium bowl, beat frosting ingredients, adding enough milk, until frosting is smooth and spreadable. Frost cupcakes. Garnish each with maple leaf candy.
