Brain Cake!

Kelli Hayes, a graduate student in my Neuroanthropology class, brought this wonderful brain cake in for everyone yesterday.

She made the frosting from marshmallow fondant – marshmallows, powdered sugar, and water – providing an icing that can gyri. And it was strawberry cake inside!

Kelli combined two recipes in making her cake:

How to Make an Anatomically Correct Brain Cake

Brain Cake

Just a note, there are plenty of fun images of zombie-style brain cake on the second site (even though Kelli drew more on the first recipe for anatomical accuracy).

The cake was great, Kelli. Thanks!

    I hope, to be anatomically correct, there was an almond in the medial temporal lobe.
