“My kids favorite dessert for summertime cookouts. It's a winner with family and friends alike. I got the recipe from Family Fun magazine and we had a blast putting this sweet treat together for a neighborhood cookout. Aside from the ingredients you should present the cupcakes using corn holders and corn plates to add that special touch.”
