This is the cupcake I made for my 12 year old to pass to his friends on his birthday on October 13th.  It was a HUGE hit, even to the point that his art teacher took photos of it and 2 girls in his class refused to touch the brain.

They taste really good, despite the way they look.  They are made of red velvet cake mix, cream cheese frosting and the brains are made of chocolate using a miniature brain candy mold.  Super simple to make if you can find the mold.  I found mine on eBay but I know they're sold elsewhere online (with outrageous shipping prices, IMO).  The chocolates can be found in any cake decorating section of craft stores (Michael's, JoAnn, etc.), the cake mix and frosting can be made from scratch or purchased at any grocery store.






Aren't they awesome?Huh





**note:  the photos I took of my creation were deleted from my camera when my husband tried to download them, so the photos shown here belong to Flickr user xsomnis.  She has given permission to use them as long as I gave her credit for them.  Check out her Flickr photo stream, she does amazing art!

oh that is DISGUSTING! I LOVE IT!! I have a zombie obsession, so now i have to look for brain molds so I can pass out cupcakes like this to my friends on Halloween (I live an obscene distance away from basically everyone I love so I've got to make my visit special)

They are awesome.  Hoping to make some myself for our Halloween party.  I ordered the brain molds from Cincinnati Cake & Candy Supplies.  Unfortunately they had to order them from the manufacturer so I may have to wait a while for them.  

Here's the link: http://www.cincicakeandcandy.com/product.php?pID=5695

They are relatively cheap plus shipping.  I ordered two molds and it was just over $10 all together.  Can't guarantee they will be able to order more but I think its worth the gamble.  

How was the "blood" achieved?

these are nice  Cheesy
they look Delicious.

I am thinking walnuts - they look like brains I think. I would say you could use them too, if the cake were to be a bit more healthy. Or one could use them to make a mold?

too awesome! I was at wal mart tonight, and in their seasonal halloween isle ( candy and stuff, not costumes) they have brain shaped ice molds.....which instantly reminded me of this. I only paid $2, and they come with gummie brains :]



I was wondeing how you did the blood though?
