Halloween draws nigh and cupcakes are still everywhere. So, what better way to get into the holiday spirit than with some macabre baked goods?

How To Make Realistic Brains For Halloween or to Fake Out Zombies

Two things that are inevitable… Halloween arriving on October 31, and the zombie apocalypse. Be ready for both with a recipe for fake brains. Brought to us by the makers of Resident Evil: Retribution, the faux brains should help gross out a few friends at your Halloween bash, or could act as an effective decoy for the walking dead.

Although it’s not recommended that you consume an entire fake brain — the main ingredient of sorbitol, although edible, isn’t great for the digestive tract — the texture and appearance is spot-on. So stay safe, survive, and Happy Halloween. Full recipe can be found here.

And, if you’d like some matching ice cubes, or just need a brain mold, there’s Brain Freeze Ice Trays.

They’re then topped with a disturbingly realistic brain, made with Lindt white chocolate, painted with cocoa butter.
