I think the zombie craze began with Popcap’s extremely popular tower defense game, Plants versus Zombies. I have a nephew who’s so into the game that he clamors for everything that has to do with zombies and brains these days. So to surprise him on his birthday, his mother (also known as my sister who doesn’t know how to bake) decided to whip up a batch of zombie-themed cupcakes using the Brains! Cupcake Kit.
And like I said, since she’s not the baking type, the bulk of the mixing actually became my job. But it wasn’t really that hard with the Brains! Cupcake Kit, because it already came with most of the mixes and materials needed to recreate the cupcakes you see on the box.
It would be kind of cool if you baked these cupcakes using the Aristocakes Silicone Baking Cups or Yumbots Robot Cupcake Molds. After all, it’s not only zombies that can have their brains displayed out and about.
