Zombie Brain Cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 50 milliliters Red liquid food dye

  • 2-3 drops of red gel food dye

  • 1-2 teaspoons cocoa powder

  • 1/2 cup corn syrup, maple syrup or golden syrup.

  • 24 Red velvet cupcakes

Instructions

  1. For this recipe you'll need a batch of my buttercream frosting and a batch of my red velvet cupcakes.

  2. Will make 24 zombie brain cupcakes OR 8-12 specimen jars, depending on how big your jars are.

  3. To prepare edible blood:

  4. 1/ Mix syrup and liquid food dye together in a stain safe bowl.

  5. To prepare brain cream:

  6. 1/ Add 2-3 drops of red food gel and cocoa powder to buttercream frosting and combine until coloured evenly.

  7. To make the jars:

  8. 1/ Start off by piping some 'brain cream' squiggly lines in the bottom 3rd of the jar. Drizzle some edible blood (about 2 teaspoon) down the sides of the jar. Add a red velvet cupcake on top and pipe some more 'brain cream' on top and finish off with a drizzle of more edible blood.

  9. To prepare brain cupcakes:

  10. 1/ Begin by piping a blob of frosting in the centre of the cupcake leaving about 1 centimeter of blank cupcake around the sides. Pipe a line of frosting across the top middle of the blob. Then pipe some squiggly lines around each side of the brain and finish off with a drizzle of edible blood on top.
