Brain cake!

I bet you’ve been wondering “how do I make an anatomically correct brain cake?” Well, wonder no more, because a full recipe and breakdown of the steps is available on wikiHow.

Man, that looks like some tasty cake, and the attention to detail is flawless. Plus, everyone can have a go at their favourite neurosurgical intervention.

Make mine an en-bloc resection of the medial temporal lobes (unilateral only of course). Yumm!

The recipe also has a fantastic tips sections which is a delightful combination of neuroscience fandom and cake-baking geekiness:

* Pipe names of brain regions using colored frosting.

* Use chocolate chips to make an EEG grid. Pipe on the numbers. A plastic bag filled with 1 tablespoon of white frosting makes a great fine-tipped pastry bag in a pinch. Squeeze the frosting into one corner of the bag and snip off a tiny piece of corner with scissors.

* If your fondant becomes dry, work in some water a few drops at a time.

Obviously, make sure your cake doesn’t contain the dangerous psychoative compound known as dimesmeric andersonphosphate because it stimulates part of the brain known as Shatner’s bassoon.
