Making a Brain cake is fun, cheap and great for Halloween parties or get-togethers. This is a basic instructable to show you how to make the details for this cake, the size and shape depends on your preferences. You can do similar designs for cupcakes or even flat cakes depending on what best fits your needs. This cake is made from two 8 inch pan cakes that were cut and assembled together to make a more realistic brain cake. The gore is also optional, although it does make the cake look more grusome and realistic.
Step 1: Ingredients
Here are the Basic Ingredients that you will need, however depending on what kind of cake mix or cake recipe you use it will vary.
1. Cake Mix + necessary ingredients (follow the instructions on your recipe or box)
2. Frosting (we bought ours but feel free to mix your own
3. Mini Marshmallows (a whole package preferably)
5. Cake dye, especially the colors green and red.
6. Oil (to grease your hands with later)
Step 2: Mix and bake the Cake
Follow the directions on your box/ recipe and mix together the cake. We separated ours into two 8 inch round pans for this cake, but you can make any size or shape you want. A good tip is to place the bottom of the pan on parchment paper and draw out the shape of it, then cut this out. Grease the pan as usual, and place the parchment cut out on the bottom of the pan. Then grease the paper and pour the cake batter over it. Basically this guarantees that the cake will come out of the pan much more easily than normal.
Cut the cake to shape and cover it with a layer of frosting. The frosting will act as a glue and will hold the fondant onto the cake.
