I was browsing some images and found an interesting new way to bake your cupcakes by xsomnis they look tasty and amazing, could be fun for kids parties or halloween, we’ll be posting some of the images and steps below but you should check the real deal by following the link at the end of the post.
Step 4: smish some of the lighter colour into the brain mould crevices.
This step makes the brain look more realistic. If you skip this, your little brain will look more like a walnut or poo instead of a brain. Don’t go crazy filling. This is just a THIN highlight. The rest of the mould will be filled with darker colour.
Step 5: melt (this was colour ratio test)
I ended up using these amounts to fill the 9 cavity mould: 20 pink, 12 blue, 4 brown. I recommend experimenting with small amounts first to test/find the right colour (gray and unappealing)
Step 6b: TAP the mould on the counter to remove bubbles
even if you tap your mould, you’ll probably end up with one or two brains in each batch with a bubble on the surface, but still taptaptaptap away to remove all the bubbles you can.
Caramel Topping ( Buy from US | UK ) – often found in ice cream section any kind will do, but I advise looking for a one with a slight opacity. I use two colours of food dye to colour the caramel. The two colours are “Red” and “Burgundy”
I added about 1/2 teaspoon of “red red” and added a tiny bit of the burgundy to darken it to the right shade. Use your judgment on the amount of burgundy you wish to add. Some like a bright red, but I like a darker colour.
