Ohhh HAlloween, how I love you so! Here is a recipe from my book, "Hey There, Cupcake!" In case you cannot tell, it is a BRAIN CUPCAKE!!! Tee hee hee! Bake a batch of cupcakes (red velvet is especially good here). Make a batch of buttercream frosting and tint it subtly with a bit of red and a bit of brown to make it brain colored. Put frosting in a pastry bag with a medium round tip attached. Squiggle frosting on cupcakes in two lobes. Serve with a spooky smile!!!!!!!
