I vant to eat your brains! Mwa ha ha.

Halloween isn't complete without a brain shaped food. I'm not so excited about Jello, so I used my brain mold to make two delicious cakes. I had a bunch of white chocolate left over from the ghosts and eyeballs, so I decided to use the left overs to make a chocolate covered cake. I chose red velvet of course for the bloody interior!

Using the same double boiler method I used for the eyeballs, I melted my remaining chocolate and then spooned it into the mold coating it multiple times to make a thick shell. I had prebaked a red velvet cake and once the mold was coated in Chocolate, I stuffed the cake inside nice and tight. I had made the cake more moist then usual so I could get it to reform into a brain shape.

Once the cake was inside, I covered the bottom with more melted chocolate, and stuck it in the freezer to solidify. And my cakes were ready to be devoured.

Can you make this without the wax? I have all the other ingredients.... if needed I can get some but I'm not sure if they sell food grade wax near me.

you should have added a little red food coloring to the chocolate/wax mixture to make it pink like brains.

isn't paraffin wax toxic?

You can buy candy grade paraffin wax.  I usually get the Gulf Wax brand which can be found in the grocery store, generally near the sugar and the sure gel (for making jams
thank you
P.S. where can i find one of those brain molds?
