This is the time of year when Pinterest and Instagram are flooded with examples of ambitious Halloween baking. Makers everywhere head to their kitchens to create candy-stuffed creations in the shapes of pumpkins, witches, crescent moons and black cats. This Halloween baking tutorial, however, strays away from the typical cutesy cookies and pretzel spiders.

This How to Cake It Halloween baking tutorial shows DIY dessert enthusiasts how to create a terrifyingly realistic Deep Red Velvet Brain Cake. As if that wasn't scary enough, it adds Fondant Brain Tissue and Raspberry Blood Jam on top for extra effect.

The tutorial and recipe were inspired by the Walking Dead, and How to Cake It chef Yolanda Gampp even dresses up as a zombie for the Halloween baking video tutorial.
