Halloween Party Recipe | Brains in a Jar Cake with Free Printables

Brains in a Jar Cupcakes! Fun Food Halloween Party Recipe with Free Printables. LivingLocurto.com

Spooky Halloween treats always make fun party food and gifts! I’m so happy to show you this fun food idea that I collaborated on with the talented Kristan Roland. We hope to creep you out in a fun way. Enjoy! ~ Amy

It’s almost Halloween, so…  Surprise! We made you Brains in a Jar!!  Isn’t that just what you’ve been wanting? Obviously these are not real brains (much to the disappointment of our sons), but they’re close enough and are the perfect combination of creepy and gross.

These fun cupcakes can be put together ahead of time, and would be great for a Halloween party dessert table or class party. Or you can do what I do and take one to your child’s teacher and say, “here’s a Brain in a Jar…and I look forward to my kid getting A’s on his work for the rest of the year…”  and give a giant awkward *WINK*. Anyway… These treats are seriously easy to put together. 

You’ll need:

    •  Small jars — I buy a box of half pint canning jars, but you can buy bigger ones if that’s what suits your fancy.

 

    •  Seedless Raspberry Jam — Because blood doesn’t have seeds in it, mmmkay?

 

    •  Pink cake — I used strawberry but you could color white batter if you prefer.  I baked mine in a large jelly roll pan so it would be thin, but you could bake it in 9 x 13 or do cupcakes and cut them in half.

 

    •  Frosting — I made my own using THIS easy recipe.  Just add a few drops of pink and a tiny drop of black to get that pinky grey color.

 

    •  Piping bag fitted with a #5 round tip  (You can buy these at Michaels, Walmart or here on Amazon for about $1.)

 

Once your cake is cooled, cut a circle of cake the size of your jar.  I used a round biscuit cutter, but you could also use another jar or a small glass.

Spoon some raspberry jam over the cake, covering the surface and making sure it reaches the edges of the jar.

Put some frosting in your piping bag.  Hold the bag at a 90 degree angle and squiggle the frosting along the edges of the jar.  It doesn’t have to be perfect, just squeeze and make a zig zag motion along the inside of the glass.

It should look like this. With a smaller glass or cutter, cut a piece of cake small enough to rest in the center of the “brain frosting”.  Place the piece of cake in the middle.

See?  That way you don’t go hurting your hand trying to pipe frosting all in the center.   Holding the piping bag at a 90 degree angle again, loosely squeeze frosting all over the top of the cake.  Just let it squiggle all over.

It should look like a gross brain in a jar.

Isn’t that totally disgusting?   But it tastes good, I promise.  I even tried a few one for quality control.   All that is left to do is attach the cute free printable tags that Amy designed!!

    Do these store well in the fridge for a day or should you finish them just before you serve?

  3. Hi! Please help! I’m in the middle of making these but finding that the icing keeps sliding down the sides of the jar. What am I doing wrong?

  4. Lisa Gorden Alesia Ortego I am going to try and make these !!!!

  5. Annita M. Escobar says:

    What a cute and fun idea!!!

  6. I have made Halloween preserves for many years and sold them in grundy mason jars with cool labels: "eye of newt", "creepy spiders" , " vial of lost souls"… and the most popular "Abby normal" brains… a real hit.

  7. You can bake the cake in the bottom , in the jar , it cuts out the need to cut into anything smaller !

  8. I won’t let me click on the tags to print.

  9. Thanks for the great idea! I’m going to put mine in clear disposable cups. Going to take them to a party at a park and we can’t have glass

  10. LOVE THESE Thanks Kristan and Amy

  11. So great, just shared these in my Halloween Recipes post.

  12. Just found this and it will be PERFECT for my daughters Monster High Birthday party. I am making foods that each Monster High Dolls loves and Brains is on the list. thanks so much!

  16. Hi! I am a brain tumor survivor who is a miracle. I should not be here but I am. Thanks be to GOD! I used this idea to bring a treat into my Neurosurgeon’s office today when I was having my latest MRI results interpreted. He loved it@ Every time I go into his office for a check up, I try to bring some ‘brain’ treat, so this was a hit. Thanks for sharing! I also posted it on my blog : http://www.bussjessica.blogspot.com

    Thank you again.
    Blessings!

  38. Making these for my son’s Mad Scientist bday party, in July!! lol

  39. We’ll be making these tomorrow at our after school Halloween party! Great idea!

  40. I made these for a Halloween party(ies) I attended last evening. I used strawberry cake mix, strawberry jelly, and strawberry frosting (with a couple drops of blue food coloring added). I would not recommend going with a “strawberry” theme…all my hard work and they weren’t touched because they were “too sugary” and “too sweet.” I came home with almost all of them. Looked marvy though.

  41. Hey! I was hoping it would be alright if I featured this on an article on Halloween DIY projects on my site, geeksinsheepsclothing.com? I’d like to use a few pictures for the article, and I’ll be sure to link back to this page. c:

  109. Disgusted – yes. In a good way – no. Sorry. I may be a Grotesqueness Grinch but I don’t see the humor? joy? fun? in pretending to eat body parts. And I do find it a bit disturbing that people encourage children to partake.
    I hope you don’t mind dissenting viewpoints.

    • @Debby,
      Everyone has their opinion. No offense taken:-)

      These were made in total fun. My boys love anything yucky and realize you don’t really eat body parts. If you read through the comments here, a person with brain cancer is excited about this treat and taking them to her cancer support group. She said they will all love them and laughter is the best medicine. So it’s not just for kids.
