Introduction: Zombie Brain Cupcakes

Picture of Zombie Brain Cupcakes

Hey Folks, here is a simple Zombie inspired cupcake. I have seen similar ones on the internet, but this is my take on a cool cupcake.

Every week we host a zombie night where a group of friends get together to enjoy zombie films (some good, some not so good - stay away from cemetery man....)

Each week someone is responsible for zombie inspired food, and this week was might turn to cook

Enjoy some brrraaaaiiinnnnnsss

Step 1: What You Will Need

I cored the cupcakes out and filled them with raspberry jam.

I then capped them with the left over cupcake.

Step 5: Just a Little Icing

I added a small layer of white icing to help keep the brains in place and add a little contrast

Step 6: Make'n Brains

I made the brains the night before as they required some time to set

I melted some chocolate in a pyrex and added to the mold.

I then place the mold in the fridge for about 3 hours to set

I experimented with different shades of chocolate, and even painted on some red chocolate to help make the brains stand out more

Step 7: Assemble the Brains

Now, just place the brains in the middle of the cupcake.

I heated up some seedless reapberry jam to pour over the brains to give the bloody look.

Step 8: Eat Some Braaaaiiinnnssss

And that's it. now you can devour some zombie brains without the fear of being infected.

"Every week"??? Wow...

Every Monday night. Dedicated group of Zombie lovers

That's awesome! BTW - Cemetery Man rocks!

For the first 45 minutes, then was still cool, but not for Zombie kills and gore....

These look awesome! And raspberry jam on cupcakes really does sound like the most wonderful thing :)

Yeah, jam worked fantastically. Will have to fill the brains next time. Thanks for the positive feedback.
