Countdown to Halloween! {Day 16}

One day closer, how is the planning coming? The other day a friend of mine said, "for being a stay at home mom, I'm sure in the car a lot!" That's the truth! Every busy mom needs a secret : made from scratch flavor can come from a box! Holidays are meant for making memories, and not the crying, screaming, pulling your hair out memories!

Halloween Countdown Recipe Day 16
Gooey Brain Cupcakes

Basic Coconut Cupcake:

1 (18.25 oz) package white cake mix (plus ingredients listed on box)
1 (7 oz) can cream of coconut ( I found mine in the drink isle)
1 (7 oz) can sweetened condensed milk


Prepare cupcake pans with paper liners. Prepare and bake white cake mix according to package directions. While still hot, using a utility fork, poke holes all over the tops of the cupcakes.

Mix cream of coconut and sweetened condensed milk together. Pour over the top of the hot cupcakes. Cool cupcakes completely before frosting.

(Martha Stewart's idea and photo) To decorate, cover the top of cupcakes with a thin smooth layer of buttercream and let dry, use a medium round tip to pipe two lines of buttercream in the center of cupcake, then pipe a brain design on each side.

Happy Baking!!
