Hello all. Thank you for your community...
This is my first post in this forum, but the zombie cake made me really want to share some fun things that I made last year for halloween. For some reason, I was really into this idea of making things that tasted good and were totally edible, but had a strong psychological barrier. Plus, we had a recipe contest at work and the judges were required
to try all the recipes (heh heh) which made it all the more fun.
It being my first post and all, I can't inline photos, but trust me, they are worth clicking...
I made three things:SeVeREd WITcheS FinGeRS
These were based on a recipe I found on the net
. My additions were green food coloring and a little raspberry jam on the end of each one to make it look as if it were torn away from a larger witches hand.Birdshit Brownies
These are just straight brownies with a "topping". The topping is double-boiled white chocolate with some cocoa krispies thrown in and just before putting over the brownies, a swirl of dark chocolate. Once that's swirled in, grab a scoop with a large spoon and sail it over the top, unloading the bomb as the spoon just moves over the brownies (for maximum effect)Potty Trainer Jello
For this one, I got a baby toilet from Target and set to work making a swirl by adding Almond flour (from Trader Joe's) to double-boiled chocolate, until it gets mealy and has some texture. I spooned it up and let it drop into the bottom of the bowl (saying, "Holy Shit, this is TOO real). Then, I made some lemon jello, poured it in the top, and put it in the refrigerator to set.
Others have suggested adding a few pieces of rice paper. I think I would throw up in my mouth a little were I to do it myself.
This year, I'm trying to think up some new recipes. Here's what I have so far.
- Ashtrays: Crumbled up Oreo cookie shells with powedered sugar in an ashtray with candy cigarettes
- Hairballs: Make black (or orange and white) cotton candy and kind of mash it together. Maybe with some swirled dark chocolate in the middle with some marshmallow.
