Braiiiins! Cake for World Zombie Day

It's World Zombie Day! It's also a Saturday, and a soccer day, so no need to pack lunch, we'll probably go out to eat after Sprout's match.

So, instead of a brains bento, I'd like to share this brains cake my friend Peggy made for her boys. It's so disgustingly awesome looking! There's not actually a recipe for the cake, sorry - you could use any red velvet cake recipe or mix - because it's really not about the cake, it's all about the frosting!

Brains Cake 
  • Bake a red velvet cake in a Pyrex bowl. Or maybe you have a dome or ball cake pan set.
  • Level off the flat side with & turn the cake out onto a plate.
  • Tint white frosting gray with a touch of black food colouring.
  • Put frosting in a big ziplock bag & trim off the corner.
  • Squeeze frosting from bag in a squiggle pattern, one half at a time to make, mirroring your pattern to make brain hemispheres.
  • For an extra gory touch, drizzle strawberry syrup on the plate.
Happy Zombie Day! 


  1. I don’t think anyone would eat it though it is a cake…

    1. Oh yes, my 12 year old boy and his friends would gleefully devour it, and probably while making horrid zombie noises too.
