Halloween plastic wrapped brains in the drink cooler

Bloody Brain in the Cooler

Add some ick factor to your Halloween party by including a fake plastic brain in plastic wrap to your drink cooler. You can find these at a lot of decoration/Halloween shops pretty cheap and it’s always a great conversation piece. If you can’t get it locally here it is on – Bloody Brains

You can even make your own gelatin/Jello type brains by using a fun, spooky food mold like this

Bloody Knife Cupcakes

You can purchase ready-made knife decorations from Wilton or make your own. Making your own takes quite a bit of work, but if you’re making a lot of cupcakes, will save you a ton of cash.

To make your own sugar molds, you need to make a knife shape out of clay and some silicone putty. Once you’ve made your clay knife, follow the instructions on the silicone putty to make your mold.

To make the sugar knives, combine ½ cup of sugar, 1 teaspoons of water and half a teaspoon of meringue powder. This is enough to make about 40 small knives. Take a knife to scoop the sugar mixture and press it gently into the mold and flatten it out. Then flipped the mold over onto some parchment paper and gently squeeze it out.

Once the white sugar knives are dry, take some royal icing mix (it’s much easier to work with a mix than make your own because the mix doesn’t harden as quickly) and color it brown. Use a small butter knife to spread the icing on as a handle.

Then, for the cupcakes, decorate them with regular butter cream icing. To top that, color some clear piping gel red to create the look of blood and then plunge the knife in.

More great ideas to come…. boohhaaahahah!
