    • Hi Arleatha, I hate to say because I haven’t tried it. Sorry, I can’t be of more help. If you give it a try please let me know.

  • I am having a problem with the evaporated milk settling a little while it sets. I end up with a rim of translucent gelatin around the base of the brain and the top is fully opaque. Any ideas?

    • I have been making brain molds for years. My recipe says it should be fat free evaporated milk for it to not separate. I usually drizzle a little thinned out red jelly or jam or maraschino juice on the mold to look like blood.
