BEAT cream cheese, butter, vanilla and food coloring in medium bowl with mixer until well blended. Gradually add sugar, beating well after each addition.

ARRANGE cupcakes on platter or tray as shown in diagram to resemble a monter's head; spread with frosting. Use decorating gel to outline the eyes, mouth, scars and hairline on cupcakes.
