Another idea would be to by a tube of the green writing gel that they sell at the grocery stores or even the cake supply stores. Might look a little more "slimey" than thinned buttercream.... but I think either way would work just fine.

Or you could just tint some piping gel.

The buttercream or fondant will hold it. I would use which ever would give you the best end result. Either will be fine with the piping gel. I used piping gel and strawberry jam for the "spaghetti" sauce on my spaghetti and meatballs cake in my gallery. It didn't leak at all.

Thanks do you think that the cake will soak up the gook i will try to fill it on Thursday night and deliver it Friday for that night, on your spaghetti was the gel ontop of the cake mine will be inside and when they cut into it i hope it will ooze, what do you think

If you can put a layer of buttercream around the edges where it ill ooze. This will create a barrier and will prevent the cake from soaking it up.
