I was browsing through a magazine and saw these cupcakes so I figured I'd give it a go.  However, I had some ideas of my own that I used instead. 
The original recipe called for store bought cupcakes but that's lame so I made my own.  I just used regular boxed white cake mix and added a good amount of yellow food color so that the cake was a nice shade of "corn yellow".   Grin  I also used yellow muffin papers.
As for the top, I frosted the cakes with white frosting and then added jelly beans in varied shades of yellow.  The "butter" was made from microwaved Starburst.  I have to say that, upon their first look, a ton of people thought the "butter" was real and were sort of grossed out. 
The final addition was to add the corn cob holders.  I only have one in in the pictures because the carry case was too small to add them all.  I did add them later. 
The only thing that I was upset about was the fact that frosting and 90 degree temperatures don't mix well so all the jelly beans started to slide off eventually.

The butter does look so realistic!  What a fun thing to bring to a party!  Very clever and shows off your creative cooking skills!

WOW...I am glad every thinks they look good!  I am so critical of my stuff so the positive feedback is much appreciated. 
I have a minor cupcake addiction going on right now so I am planning on making some more stuff soon.  The funny thing is that I don't want to eat them as much as I want to make them look pretty!   Cheesy
