2. Rice Brains
Rice works very well as brains, and this is especially true of rice pudding which also has that gooey texture that we expect of our grey matter! You can also add some tiny bits of red food coloring in order to give your brains a bloody look.
Creating this effect is all about how you use it. You can add the rice brains to fruit cups for instance in order to give them spilling out brains. Likewise, you can pile up the rice pudding into a sticky, brain-like shape, and then add eyeballs at the front using a range of different strategies. Or how about drawing a face on an apple, cutting it in half and then spreading the rice pudding around the plate as though it’s pouring out from the top? Add a little jam and you’ve created your look.
