Prepare cake mix according to box directions. Bake as cupcakes. Frost each cupcake with white frosting. With blue frosting, make a circle on the top of the cupcake to simulate an iris. Roll a raisin to make it round and place it in the center of the blue icing. With red food dye and a fine paint brush, paint red streaks from the outer edge inward to simulate a bloodshot look.
