Brains skull closeHave been meaning to make these for about a week, ready for Halloween and by the skin of my teeth I managed to get them ready before the doorbell rings with trick and treaters!

You could add these brains to cupcakes, biscuits or traybakes. I thought brownies worked well and then you can call them Brainies!

Brains shaping

I used Fudge and Chomp bars as the dome for the icing to go on. Shaped slightly so they are more like a lozenge shape. using the fat end of a piping nozzle works well to shape the ends. Mine were about 2.5 cm long, you can make them whatever size suits your project.





Using a vanilla buttercream coloured pink attach the chocolate to the brownie.Brains attached I used a round piping nozzle with a diameter of about 3-4 mm, change the size to suit you. Then pipe a slightly wiggly line down the centre.

Next pipe in a continuous line up and down the side, then the other side like a long wiggly worm!

To add some blood I used jam with a little water added to make it a runnier consistency. Sieve it to get a gel, then for an added zing I put in some red colour gel.
