Cookie Cupcake Cannibals was held this past Sunday in The HUB!  Initially we were going to decorate cookies, but it turns out, you can make grosser, grimmer looking desserts using cupcakes.  Boy, was that a deliciously gruesome choice.  With the help of Justine Chavez, a Chicago-area baker and professional cake decorator, teens were able to create some zombielicious treats.  (Yes, I'm definitely taking liberties with the English language in this blog post.)
 
There were brains, eyeballs, gravestones, and blood... oh so much blood!  Don't worry the blood was actually caramel.  Mmmm blood.
 
It wasn't all just cupcakes and frosting though (although that is delicious enough).  We used Oreo crumbs for graveyard dirt, Twizzlers Pull n' Peel for eye veins, and fondant for a blade to the heart!
 
Check out the photos from the program below.  Nice and creepy treats any zombie would enjoy.  Bon apetit!

Last Tuesday we had a delicious, colorful, and (at times) messy night at the Nuke Your Food! program. High schoolers met up in the Cardinal Room to create some nommy noms, such as a mug cake! The twist on this cooking class was that we made everything in a mug and just using a microwave.
 
 
What was doubly awesome about the night was that we also got to decorate and keep our food receptacles (mugs) using ink-based Sharpies!
 
 
All you need to do is buy special ink-based/paint markers, decorate a ceramic mug, and bake it in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees!
