From the depths of R’lyeh rises… a taste sensation!
Don’t have time to make a super fancy dessert for your next Necronomicon bookclub meeting? No worries – you can whip up these adorable little strawberry Cthulhu dessert toppers in less than five minutes and add them to any pre-made treat. See how it’s done in the recipe below.
Step 1 – Consult the cutting blueprint, then select one large strawberry for each Cthulhu you want to call forth into unholy existence.
Step 2 – Chop the strawberries into three pieces of roughly equal thickness.
Step 3 – Cut out the wings using one of the end pieces.
Step 4 – Cut out the four large tentacles using the middle piece. Keep the scraps for later.
Step 5 – Cut out the head shape using the last end piece, and between 3 to 5 mouth tentacles depending on how large your strawberry is.
Step 6 – Cut slots for the eyes, and pop in small chocolate balls or the edible eyeball material of your choice.
Step 7 – If you are placing your Cthulhus on a tart or something sunken like this, use your berry scraps now to build up the center a bit before placing the wings on.
Step 8 – Place the long tentacles next and arrange in a pleasing/horrifying fashion.
Step 9 – Finally put the head on, and serve!
