Brain Cupcakes

Perfect for Halloween or zombie imitators, are Cherry Vanilla Brain Cupcakes by CandyCasters. The cupcakes themselves are vanilla with chunks of maraschino cherries, and cherry vanilla butter cream frosting. They’re then topped with a disturbingly realistic brain, made with Lindt white chocolate, painted with cocoa butter.

Cupcakewurst, Cupcake-Filled Sausages

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you stuffed a sausage casing with cupcake batter? Well, Stef of The Cupcake Project sure has, and she’s turned her curiosity into a horrifying reality with Cupcakewurst.

Using actual sausage casings, Stef filled them with chocolate batter, and baked up what could only be described as oven turds. The finished product also got a few minutes on the grill, and raspberry sauce for added effect. That effect being not wanting a hot dog for lunch.

Instructions for how to make your own Cupcakewurst can be found here.

There Ain’t No Party Like A Bug Cupcake Party

In what seems like a good way to help kill an overstayed food trend, an insect cupcake party was recently held. The bug-fest was to help celebrate the release of The Insect Cookbook in The Netherlands. The cookbook is infested with recipes, where bugs are the main source of protein — or gross-out factor, depending on what camp you’re in.

And not to be outdone by its miniature versions, the party also boasted an attempt at the world’s largest grasshopper cake. Yes, with actual grasshoppers included.
