Of course if you're a fan of 1950s Betty Crocket cookbooks, you can just skip all the trouble and use a real brain set atop your favorite kind of jello mold.

unSane, I bought that jello mold last year, and my kids LOVE it. Zombie night is a big hit around my house.

To me this just says specialized cake pan: I've got a tractor pan, why not a brain pan?

why not a brain pan?

Indeed.

I have made many biologically-inclined cakes, but never one shaped like a brain. New goal. Also, that Jello mold is awesome.

I dunno, the steps aren't much more detailed than

1. Look at a picture of a brain
2. Make a cake that's shaped like the brain
3. Cover it with frosting that looks like the brain

Still, neat idea, and sure to be fun for the kids!

Holy shit, dgaicun. That first link is amazing. And actually kinda killing my cake appetite.

This thread is not anatomically correct without cortex.

Halloween 2008 is going to be awesome for me because of this thread, I hope you realize.

Where are the medullary olives? Or the substantia nigra?

The recipe says to repeat for each cortex. I guess we only have to do it once, then!

Alas, my anatomically-correct brain cake wouldn't have a corpus callosum to lick. But it would still be delicious.

Regular fondant is nasty. Is marshmallow fondant better?

Hey! web-goddess has one of those brain molds too.

Finally, a brain (cake) even slow zombies can catch.

(Also, awesome!)

I can't wait for Mythbusters to stick one of those in Buster before dropping him off a building.

I'll probably never make this (I usually stay with a jello mold brain), but it's a good idea.
