Here's a fun add-on project for when your guests tire of sliced, preserved meats -- the Jell-O Brain Skull!

For this, we'll use a readily available "Zombie Brain Jell-O mold".

Make a Brain

Mix up a batch of gelatin, as per the instructions on the box. Red flavors work quite well! It's a good idea to mix it in a bowl and stirring well before pouring it into the mold.

Spray some non-stick vegetable oil spray into the mold to act a a mold release before pouring in the gelatin mixture.

Let it set up in the refrigerator, at least 4 hours.

Saw the Skull Cap

Mark a line around the top of the skull where you want to remove it. This is the flat spot on which the Jell-O will sit.

Use a thin bladed hand saw or bread knife to cut along the line.

Brain Transfer

Place the skull on top of the Jell-O mold.

Carefully turn the entire assembly upside down to release the brain onto the skull.

Place your MONSTER M4SK into the skull's eye sockets (you can secure it with tape or toothpicks through the mounting holes if you like) and your delicious dessert is ready for spooning into small bowls and eating!

Please note, the bottom layer should be avoided so nobody eats styrofoam. If you want to be extra careful, cut out a paper plate by tracing the skull cap and place it under the Jell-O.
