Nerdie Foodie Fridays: Zombie Week

Foooooddddiiieeeesss, it’s zombie week! We’ve got brains, brains, eyeballs, some other gross stuff, and did I mention brains? Oh, right, and brains! So without further ado, let’s get zombifying!

Zombie Cookies

These are fantastic for the kids (and the big kids as well) if you’ve got that artistic flair! Melissa (from Simply Sweets by Honeybee) shows us how to make and decorate zombie cookies. Check out the video below!

Broken Glass

Now these cupcakes look ridiculously realistic! Ruthanne from Easy Baked shows us how to make these bloody cupcakes (because we all know zombies aren’t the most clean and neat eaters during feeding time) at home here!

Maggots and Worms

Even zombies need snacks besides all the brains. Check out these awesomely gruesome cupcakes topped with worms and maggots from Shane’s Killer Cupcakes. Mmmm….delish! Check out the recipe here!

Brains

Now that we’ve whetted our appetites, time for the main course: Brains! We have a couple variations. First up, brains preserved in jars of formaldehyde. One of my favourite YouTubers, Elise from My Cupcake Addiction, shows us just how to do this! Check out the video below!

Elise also shows us how to make a bleeding brain cupcake (for those who like their brains extra bloody and slightly on the carb-ier side. Check it out below!

Next, if you’re ever on the go and need to pack a portable lunch (or dinner), Amy Locurto from Living Locurto shows us how to make our own brains in a mason jar (with cake of course, because even zombies need a bit of carbs). Check out the recipe and how-to here!

And of course not every brain is “normal”, check out these abnormal brains (made out of popcorn) by Nikki Gladd from Seeded at the Table! Make a bunch of these as to-go snacks! Check out the recipe here.

Eyeballs

Now I did promise eyeballs to all you zombies out there. Again, Elise (I told you she’s one of my fave YouTubers) shows us a no bake version. That’s right! Even if you have zero baking skills, you can make these treats! Check out the video below!

Bleeding Hearts

Lily Vanilli (@lilyvanillicake) shows us how to make a very realistic bleeding human heart out of red velvet cake and fondant! Check out the recipe here! Besides, zombies need variety in food as much as humans do.
