Spooky Clinical Eyeball Vanilla Cupcakes!


Last night, my dear friend Stef and I made cupcakes for her co-workers.

Considering she works at an eye doctor’s office, we made a bunch of eyeball/retina¬†cupcakes, along with some basic spooky Halloween cupcakes.

They were just basic Vanilla cupakes, but wow were they good!

Spooky Clinical Eyeball Vanilla Cupcakes!

Makes 24 Cupcakes


  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin pan or line with paper baking cups.
  2. In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Stir in the eggs, one at a time, blending well after each one. Stir in the vanilla and flour just until mixed. Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, dividing evenly.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 18 to 20 minutes. Cool in the pan set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter.
  4. Frost them! (optional, but I totally suggest it)
