Zombie Guts (Cinnamon Rolls)

For something even more realistic, Stacey and Jennifer (from In The Kids Kitchen) share with us their recipe and tutorial for red velvet cinnamon rolls that will look like intestines! Let me warn you by saying that this recipe actually does very realistic to the human intestinal tract (aka. our guts) if it’s been infected. But only this is more delicious to eat than the real thing. Check out the recipe here!

Spinach and Garlic Pupae on Fungus

And for those who are extremely brave, this recipe is for you. Thanks to the Eat the Dead blog, Hellen Die has created another masterpiece. Everything is still edible, only this time, the pupae in this recipe are real silkworm pupae. Nope, you’re not mistaken. Real silkworm pupae. Also keep in mind that this recipe requires some prep work the day/night before you would like to put everything together and serve. Check out the recipe here if you dare…

Dead Man’s Kiss (Alcoholic)

And finally, to wash it all down, how about some homemade black vodka? Note, this recipe also requires you to wait 24hrs for things to come together, so make this in advance. Anne-Marie Nichols (from This Mama Cooks! On A Diet) shares with us her recipe here! It looks eerily delicious!
