Make the raspberry blood topping: In a small saucepan, whisk together the jam, lemon juice and water, and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Remove from the heat and whisk in red food coloring. Let cool completely before using.
For assembling the cupcakes, scoop half the frosting into a decorating bag fitted with a #1A tip and pipe a small mound of frosting on top of each cupcake.
Scoop the remaining frosting into a decorating bag fitted with a #10 tip and pipe a brain design on each mound.
Drizzle with the raspberry blood.
