Brains. BRAINS! Halloween zombies want brain cupcakes! Gross out your little trick-or-treaters with this deliciously ghoulish cupcake decorated with brain-like frosting. It's easier than it looks.

Brain Cupcakes Recipe via Epicurious
- Pink or white paper cupcake liners
- 1 recipe batter for Red Velvet Cupcakes
- 1 recipe Vanilla Butter Cream Frosting
- Red and black food coloring
- Pastry bag and large round tip
1. Line cupcake tins with the liners. Fill the cupcake liners two-thirds full with the batter and bake the cupcakes as directed in the recipe.
2. Mix a drop of red and black food coloring into the frosting to make it a pinkish gray brain color.
3. Using the pastry bag, pipe the frosting in a squiggly pile on half of each cupcake top (brains have two hemispheres, you know). Now pipe the frosting in a squiggly pile on the other half of the cupcake top.
