Sure, you could bake a regular sheet cake for your next party, or you could make something a little bit more morbid with this 3D Skull Head Silicone Cake Mold available on Amazon (affiliate link). The mold creates both front and back skull pieces that, when attached with icing, create a life-size 8.5″ x 5.4″ x 7.1″ cranium. Well, an average life-size cranium. Mine is much larger.
This mold will come in handy around Halloween time. What do you think would make the best edible eyeballs to put in the eye sockets – gumballs? Jawbreakers? Pearl onions? Hardboiled eggs? Of course, those last two would probably be considered more tricks than treats. Especially if you also carved a hole in your skull cake and filled it with spaghetti to mimic brains.
Not much of a cake person? No worries, the silicone molds are equally suitable for making Rice Krispies treats or soap. But, speaking from experience, eating that much soap will probably upset your stomach. To my mom’s credit, though, I’ve never said another dirty word since.
