100% EDIBLE ZOMBIE GUMMY BEAR GRAVEYARD HALLOWEEN CAKE

ED: Once again the time has arrived where the Undead horde lumbers and Draculas awake from their slumbers to party and get wasted in clubs and bars. Apart from rampant ghoulish activities and howls in the Halloween skies, it is also a much anticipated hunting season. Yes, it’s slut bunny season boys, a day where girls mystically transform under the moon light sprouting bunny ears and bosoms and shedding clothes.

So that’s mainly how we celebrate Halloween here in Singapore, which sadly leans away from the souling custom of carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns as a way of remembering the souls held in purgatory; Or the customary celebration for children on Halloween where our little spawnlings would go in costumes from house to house, asking for treats such as candy or sometimes money, with the question, “Trick or treat?”. It is also traditional to prepare disgusting looking food for dinner parties to match the atmosphere though it severely contradicts the phrase “we eat with our eyes”. I’ve prepare a little spooky treat this Halloween- a 100% edible gummy bear graveyard! It’s basically an instant brownie cake and its simple to prepare, as complicated as it may seem rest assured there’s no tricks for this disgusting treat, if you do as I say… MUAHAHAHhahaa…

Ingredients

  • 1 box instant brownie mix(you will probably need an egg and 1/4 cup of oil and water as well)
  • 1 box of chocolate pocky & 1 box of white chocolate pocky
  • 1 box of any squarish chocolate coated biscuits(to make the tombstone. I used Jules Destrooper biscuits)
  • 1/2 a bar of melted chocolate(to create the tree trunk and pipe the words on the tombstone etc.)
  • 100g green gummy bears(to be melted to create slim puddle)
  • A few round white chocolate balls(to create the eyes & some jam to make them look bloody)
  • Some green tea powder(to create a moss/grass effect)
  • 5 tbsp of sugar(to create caramel for the “spider web sugar effect”)

Components of the cake

  • Base and soil- Brownie
  • Slim pool and center gummy zombie piece- Gummy bears
  • Tree trunk- Chocolate pocky, melted chocolate
  • Tombstone- Square biscuit, melted chocolate
  • Eyeballs- White chocolate balls, melted chocolate
  • Fence around the graveyard- White pocky sticks
  • Moss effect- Green tea powder
  • “Spider web tree top” – Caramelized sugar
  1. Micro wave 1/2 chocolate bar and gummy bears separately(remember to save 1 for the center piece) for about 2 minutes till melted.
  2. Preheat oven with instructed temperature on the brownie box, prepare brownie mix and pour into oiled baking dish and bake with instructed time.
  3. Grab a bunch of chocolate pocky and coat melted chocolate all around it to create the tree trunk. Refrigerate to hold its shape.
  4. Poke a hole at corner of zip lock bag with a tooth pick from the inside, fill it with melted chocolate and pipe whatever you want on the tombstone eg. (RIP, “Cross”, etc.) and refrigerate.
  5. Pipe dots on the white chocolate balls to create eye balls and use a tooth pick to coat with jam and refrigerate. *(TIP: pipe a dote below each white chocolate ball to help them stick on plate so they don’t roll around)
  6. When brownie is done baking, ease it out of the baking dish by running a knife around it. Pop it out onto a plate and cool completely.
  7. Carve out the grave, puddle and hole for the tree and tombstones with a small knife and reserve crumbs and pile it beside the dug out grave.
  8. Fill up the patch with melted gummy to create slim puddle and place the gummy in the tomb. *(TIP: Glue the bottom of the gummy with melted gummy to make it stand)
  9. Arrange the eye balls, tombstones, tree trunk, white pocky fence(use tooth pick to create small holes first) and sprinkle green tea powder around. Refrigerate till gummy puddle has hardened.
  10. Melt sugar in a pan till it becomes caramel, cool for about half a minute till caramel starts to thicken a little but NOT HARDENED(if it does simply reheat it)
  11. Using a fork, dip it into caramel and in an “up & down” whipping motion flick the caramel drizzles onto a aluminum foil. The flicking should cause the caramel to harden in mid air, forming the “spider-web” sugar effect.
  12. Place spider web onto tree trunk to complete the cake. (Warning: Do not prepare the spider web until the last minute before serving as it would melt)

It isn’t necessary to copy every detail, be disgustingly creative and twisted when it comes to Halloween cake decorating! Enjoy the haunting and have a creepy Halloween! I shall now end off with my, evilllll laughter. MUAHAhahaha…
