Custard Brain Cupcakes by Exceedingly Vegan
Exceedingly Vegan has certainly exceeded him with this recipe! These cupcakes are made from custard brains and cherry blood, giving off the ghoulish look of real brains! Ick! But do not fear, they don’t taste anything like brains.
“So, I was thinking of a way to make a really fun vegan cup cake for Halloween without excessive calories. At the moment I am totally into custard (must be the weather), so I realised there must be a way to make the custard dense enough to work as cupcake frosting. And it did work!” - Exceedingly Vegan
