use red with a little brown in a mixture of piping gel and corn syrup.
look at my eye ball cake i just posted and that is what i used. for thicker blood use just the piping gel for older looking bld put in a little more brown. You can see that on my severed arm cake with rats on my photos as well.

Thank you guys so much! I was going to try something with strawberry jello with maybe Karo...wasn't real sure. I sure do like this much more simple way to do it! icon_biggrin.gif

I usually just use the red americolor straight from the bottle. It stays kind of wet and oozy, which is perfect. Id probably mix it with corn syrup if I needed a lot but usually I just need a little bit...

Thanks Mamacc! I think I'll try that next time. I ended up using Americolor in piping gel and then decided I needed a little thinnier consistency so added Karo. Worked pretty good. As soon as I can figure the upload thingy I'll try to post a picture of the finished cake.
I appreciate all the wonderful ideas and responses! thumbs_up.gif
