HOWTO make edible googly eyes -- and an edible Flying Spaghetti Monster!

The wonderful folks at Evil Mad Scientist Labs have figured out how to make edible googly eyes (snip the ed of a gelatin pill capsule pop in a round cake-sprinkle and affix it to half a Whopper; they demonstrate the technique with this excellent edible Flying Spaghetti Monster effigy!

While the gelatin capsules have a dome on each end, they have a lot of space in between that we really don't need. The photo above illustrates how much of each end we want to keep: the domed part plus a few millimeters. As it turns out, you cannot use the scissors to actually cut it there-- it will crack or suffer permanent creases, making it useless for our application...

Next, we're going to need rolling pupils for our eyes, and these fit the bill perfectly. These are Wilton Jumbo Rainbow Nonpareils, one brand of *giant* round sprinkles a couple of millimeters across. Our big surprise: these actually taste pretty good-- they're flavored candy. The downside is that we only really want dark pupils, so there's some fishing around to find them in the assortment..

    Yes, you can eat these. The whole point to creating the googly eyes was to do it out of edible ingredients.

  2. I thought it was a lot more exciting before I learned it was not pasta or real meatballs. This is an imitation FSM made with marshmallows, chow mein noodles, and cocoa puffs! We must eat these delicious snacks before the FSM can look down to see so many sweet false idols.

  3. The FSM always gives me the creeps. He reminds me of Cthulhu. The god of the old testament is almost preferable.

  4. we love you FSM (oh the persecution)

    “how can you idiots belive this stupid religion? You idiot taoist won’t believe Christianity because of eternal judgement, but you’ll believe a bunch of crackheads that think a stupid ball of spaghetti with meatballs created the universe? If that’s your logic on this subject, you belong with these moronic crackheads. Oh and by the way I ate your faggot god for lunch, he has tiny balls.

  5. Dammit, Strider! I wanted to be the one to quote Homer. Isn’t your dominance in the Gizmodo commenting enough for you? :P

  6. I’d hardly call that edible. Cool- yes. Creepy- absolutely. But my gag reflex is working overtime just looking at it.

  7. I dunno about creepy. The tough part would be eating a work of art. Nicely done!

    I’d wager you could add some crushed red kix to the marshmallow cream before coating the noodles. It would give it a chunky red tomato sauce look.

    For you strict vegetarians, substitute dried peas for the “meat balls”. I’m sure His Noodlieness would be accomodating.
