This was the absolute HIT of my daughter's Spooky Sleepover Bday Party! We ran out of time to make the radish eyeballs, so we ended up using gummy eyeballs, which worked very well. I used Emily's Easy Veggie Dip because it was fast and easy. We left the brain out all night and in the morning, parents were complimenting us on how fabulous it looked! We will definitely do this again - Thanks!

It totally rocked snack time for a group of 9 yo girls at a Girl Scout meeting. They couldn't wait to eat it! We skipped the olives and optic nerves and substituted gummy eyeballs and gummy vampire teeth.

This was a huge hit at a Halloween party I was invited to. My variations: I sank a small Pyrex bowl into the hole in the top instead of foil. I used baba ganoush dip and let it pour over the edges of the bowl onto the cauliflower to hide the bowl. I spooned red and green salsa over the cauliflower to add more grossiosity and put more fake radish eyeballs with their roots (optic nerves) still attached underneath with all the other veggies.

This was fabulous fun! 2 of the kids had to be enticed to eat it because it was so real looking. I used pomogranite juice.

What a great idea! I made it as brain and did not add the face. Use red icing thinned with water to make the blood veins. Will make again for sure!

How on earth can you call this "cute?" This is just totally disgusting looking! And a whole container of food coloring? Seriously, try educating yourself on how food coloring affects your body!

This was a great centerpiece for my veggies. I didn't make a face out of it though. I made a hole in the top (couldn't really get it large enough to hold a lot of dip, but it was okay.) Then I used red cake decorating gel and oozed it along the lines of the cauliflower. I used a spinach dip and a whole container of red food coloring mixed in to make it look as bloody as possible.
