The Walking Dead is back from the dead and these edible brains will inspire the perfect snack food for this anticipated return.

What is it with humans and their recent fascination with brains and zombies? Food inspired by the human brain has become somewhat of a phenomenon lately, especially with the rising popularity of zombie culture.

These creations normally come in the form of cerebral cupcakes, chocolates and cakes. But rest assured, they certainly taste better than they look -- although I’ve never tried brain, so I can’t say for sure.

Probably the most useful trait in this edible brains food trend is warding off potential food bandits. Your roommates may back off from eating your delicious cake if it looks like a brain.
