Got brains?? These Brain Cupcakes are an easy and fun Halloween dessert recipe. You can use this decorating method with any cake and frosting combination!

Pipe a thin layer of buttercream on top of baked and cooled cupcakes.

Smooth out the frosting with a knife or offset spatula.

Pipe a line down the middle of a cupcake.

Fill up the space to the right with one long buttercream squiggle, beginning at the top, widening through the middle, and narrowing at the bottom.

Repeat on the left side, until you have formed both halves of the “brain.”
