I always have a lot of fun planning and making the food for our annual Halloween party, and some times I EVEN remember to take pictures along the way! Unfortunately, i am usually so busy up until the party that I wouldn't get around to posting anything until after Halloween and that isn't helpful!
So, today I am posting the step by step directions for the brain cupcakes that I made last year. I started with a basic cupcake and these little plastic skull shaped buckets that I found at Walmart last year. I was thrilled to discover that a regular cupcake fit down inside the skull.
I didn't take pictures of my step by step icing process, but you can find lots of them online. Here is a picture that is similar to what I did.
There are step by step pictures of the icing on this website. I probably mounded up my icing higher than they did. I also tried to get more of a purple-grey color for the brain, but I think I like the bright pink in the example better.
