Brain Cupcakes

Pin It Brain Cupcakes


Brain Cupcakes

Fred Nom Skull Baking Cups
Allen got me Fred Nom Skull Baking Cups for Christmas and I waited for Halloween baking time to make Brain Cupcakes. The wait was so worth it. To make the mauve pink color for the brain, I used Wilton Concentrated Gel Icing Color in Pink and Brown, adding a few drops of each color in the frosting until I reached the desired color. The frosting and cupcake recipes are the same as my previous post Pumpkin Cupcakes (links below). If you do not want to use Pumpkin for the cupcakes, Vanilla cupcakes with a few drops of either a little orange or pink color would work great. I was inspired by the blog Bren Did (link below) and her adorable brain cupcakes and the tutorial is great!

Baking cups sprayed and ready to fill

Allen's Brain Cupcake
I sprayed the inside of the baking cups with a little Wilton Bake Easy! Non-Stick Spray and filled each cup leaving 1/3 since the batter will rise when they bake in the oven. I kept the cupcakes in the baking cups and frosted the top of the cupcakes with a thin layer using an offset spatula. I filled a small squeeze bottle with a round tip to make the brain frosting. I started with two lines in the center and for the left and right side of the brain made 2 squiggles on each side. Let frosting set for 2-3 hours in the fridge and serve in the baking cup. Right before eating just gently squeeze out of the cup and the cupcake will release and you will see the skull head imprint.
