'What?!?! MORE cupcakes? Where are the drawings and sewings and art, Alicia?' you say.
'Psshaw!' say I. ' I HAD to make them! They're brain slugs. I have no choice.'
And so this past weekend, I made some Futurama brain slug cupcakes for a birthday celebration. We needed something that could travel to the pub, be delicious, be to the birthday boy's liking in terms of content, and fairly quick and easy to make, just like last year's Zappa Utility Muffins.
And I have to say they tasted especially delicious with some Real Ale coffee porter. Mmmm!
I opted to make the brain slugs themselves from gum paste, with royal icing eyes, and flower stamen antennae that I attempted to dye green with food coloring (and very vaguely succeeded in doing so). They are vanilla cupcakes from scratch, with some slightly grenadine flavored buttercream icing brains.
And they were as tasty as the sweet, sweet fluids the brain slugs crave themselves! Pin It
