Don't you just hate it when your edible accessories come to life and try to kill you? So annoying....

Today I'm going to show you how to make this wearable, scrumptious, yet menacing dessert!

Step 1: "Saucy Lil Minx " White Brownies

First thing's first, let's get baking! These chewy spiced brownies are a decadent alternative to everyday chocolate.

You will need :

2 1/2 Cups Flour
1tbs Cornstarch
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup White Sugar
1 egg
1/3 Cup Milk
1/8 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Chili Powder
1/8 tsp Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Ground Cloves
Nonstick Cooking Spray
Medium Mixing Bowl
Spatula
Will Power (to resist eating it out of the bowl)

Step 2: Bake and Cut

Mix all your ingredients together and pour into a greased 9×11 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for an hour, then flip it onto pre-laid plastic wrap, and cut out an upside-down "U" shape. Set aside.

Step 3: What You Need to Decorate

To create these creepy critters, you will need the following :

1 lb White Fondant
Fondant brushes
Fondant Shaping Tools
Fondant Roller
Saran Wrap
Dowling Rods
Fondant Coloring (Your choice)
Fondant Matte Color Powder
Water in a small dish for painting
Exacto Knife (or similar blade)
(Optional) Small cake pan to set body on for shape.

Step 4: Let's Make Some Heads

For this effect, I chose to make 2 Mink heads, one dead, one alive. It's fun for photos, but one head will do serving.

Start shaping your heads, by creating a somewhat triangular shape. Add depth and dimension by using your fondant ball tool.

Step 5: Jaws

To make the open jaw effect, cut the head along the middle, and pull back. Cut a medium Dowling rod into thirds, then bend, but don't break 2 of them. Insert them into the mouth. Then using a fleshy color of fondant, cover the rods inside of the mouth.

Step 6: I Got My Eye on You

For the eyes, I did black with white X'es for the dead head, and green and yellow for the live one. Just place them gently in the sockets, with a little water for adhesion.

Step 7: The Tongue

To make the tongue, roll a small red piece of fondant, and run a line down the middle. Texture it with small dots for more dimension. Place it in the mouth using water as adhesive. To make it appear wet and more realistic, add a little water with the brush to the tongue.

Step 8: Sweet Tooth

For the teeth, roll fine fondant lines, then use your Exacto knife, to cut the teeth into points, then glue them into the mouth using water and a paintbrush.

Step 9: Body Time!

To make the body:

First, sandwich your brownie piece between two pre-rolled 1/2 inch thick fondant pieces of the same shape. Be sure the Fondant is slightly wider than the Brownie, so it can seal. Seal the edges with water and a brush.

(Optional) For more shape, you can set the mid section of the Mink on a raised surface, like this small cake pan.

Step 10: Fur Fur Fur

Then create a fur- like texture, by running your Exacto blade along the back. And create hair- like follicles, by slicing the entire edge with small cuts.

Step 11: Paint

Paint the body and head using fondant Matte powder mixed with equal parts water. I used reddish brown. Use small delicate brush strokes for a more realistic look.

Step 12: Get a Leg Up

For the legs, shape 4 pieces of fondant, using your shaping tool. Then with a sharp tool to cut the paws. Then add nails, by sticking small pieces of the rice noodles into each finger tip. Add the legs to the body, using water to glue them.

Step 13: Finishing Touches

No project is complete without those last few touches. The Devil is in the details!

Add doweling rods to each head, to make them interchangeable.

Add whiskers using pieces of rice noodles, broken to length.

Add a ring of red food coloring around the "live" head's eyes, for a dash of malice.

If you're planning on wearing this lovely shawl, wear your hair up, and put a piece of plastic wrap underneath your brownie, otherwise.....no one will eat it.

Step 14: Enjoy!

This wearable dessert is a hilarious addition to any sinister gathering, and it also happens to be delicious! Enjoy creeping your friends out! I'm so honored to be a part of this!
