You would be a shoe-in for medical school. :P

Mwaaaaghhhh! Brains. How fun and Maybelle looks so innocent eating her brain dumplings.

Love these! How cool! Very Halloween appropriate and great to eat, too. Sure beats the fun-size junk candy I've been trying to avoid at the office. :-)

Too cute and so delicious too. I'm very impressed.

FREAKING AWESOME! pork buns are an addiction for me; but to eat them as they resemble brains would be so insanely fun. I would sit there and play with my food and pretend to be a zombie. Yes, i am in my mid-20s.

Poetic, as always.

So awesome! My city's zombie walk is happening in the coming days, it would be great to walk around in costume with some little brains to give away. Or to have at a halloween party!

Great post! I feel so inspired.

As a neuroscientist, I love these!

Filled with soy???????? Who in their right mind eats soy anymore? We try like crazy, in my family that is, to avoid the junk at all costs. Some fermented soy like tempe, miso, natto -- fine -- but not even tofu for us. Nope, nope nope. Soy NOT good.

They are hilarious! I love char siu bao but it never occurred to me that they would make such gruesome brains!

Those are so great! I really love the idea.

Cheers,

My friends would get such a kick out of these! Well, me too. Love that this is actually a savory recipe instead of a cupcake or other sweet. :-)

Wow, really nice idea! I especially like the fact that you seem to use beetroot juice for painting instead of chemical food colours. Also, nice presentation of the overall process.
Thanks for sharing.

So funny!
When posting pics to blogger, it has "photos from blog" as an option. All sorts of stuff pops up, and your "Eat brains, Yum!" pic popped up.
Took me a while to figure out why, and where it came from - but it was from the thumbnail on my blogroll!
A real Halloween trick.. or treat!

I haven't had the time I'd like to visit blogs lately but I have to say that these are so truly AWESOME!! The baby eating them shot is the best too!
