Bloody brain cupcakes for Halloween

Brain cupcake

You don’t have to be a zombie to have a taste for brains on Halloween. Or at least brain cupcakes. I’ve seen variations on this creepy cupcake idea in which the “brains” are mini marshmallows and the blood is icing rather than gel. Yum!

What You Need: 1 cupcake; chocolate frosting; white frosting; red gel writing icing; pastry bag and round metal tip (I used #5).

How to Make It: Frost cupcake with chocolate icing. Using pastry bag fitted with #5 tip, make two groups of circles (remember to stop squeezing the icing bag before you pull up or you’ll get little peaks). For each hemisphere of the brain, I made an inside row of four circles and an outside row of three. Then, drizzle red gel for oozing blood. Happy Halloween!
