Recipe of the Day: Brain Cupcakes

Need some "food for thought"? Brain cupcakes coming right up!

With Halloween around the corner, I am sure you are getting ready to bake some ghoulish treats, so this week I will feature some awesome recipes that you can make for your Halloween Party.

First up, Brain Cupcakes from Disney Family Fun!


-Cake Batter of your choice (for a dozen cupcakes)
-Food coloring: yellow, pink, and green
-Buttercream frosting

Baking Tools
-pastry bag (to fill the frosting with)
-#10 round tip (to place on the pastry bag)


Step#1-Bake a batch of 1 dozen cupcakes; let cool.

Step#2-In a separate bowl, mix 2 cups of buttercream frosting with a couple drops of yellow and pink food coloring and a touch of green food coloring until you have a hue you like (light orange).

Step#3-Spread a coat of the now light orange icing onto the dozen cupcakes.

Step#4-Place remaining light orange icing into a pastry bag. Secure it with a #10 round tip to top it off.

Step#5-Using the now icing filled pastry bag, top the dozen cupcakes with fat zigzags. It works best to first pipe two zigzags down the middle and then fill in the sides.

Brain cupcakes COMPLETE!
