Eat a brain cake this Halloween

Satisfy your zombie cravings by baking your own version of this incredibly realistic brain cake made by YouTube celeb chef Rosanna Pansino.


This Halloween, horrify your family, friends and trick-or-treating guests with this Red Velvet Zombie Brain Cake.

YouTube personality and author of "Nerdy Nummies" cookbook Rosanna Pansino shows step by step how to create a gruesome-looking treat that will impress the hungriest of zombies. The video, which posted Tuesday, already has over a million views.

While red velvet cakes are nothing new, Pansino transforms the boring cake mold with a cool trick that uses marshmallow fondant.

She rolls the fondant into ropes to mold on the outside of the cake making it look remarkably like a human brain.

After painting the fondant with an edible fake-blood topping made from raspberry jam and red gel food coloring, the end result looks rather disgusting.
