The customer would like the cake to bleed when it is cut! I have no idea how to make this happen. Anyone have any ideas? TIA

Stab it. Hard.

Just kidding. I guess a thinned out strawberry coulis or other red berry preserve mixture perhaps, dammed real well so it bursts forth when cut into.

Only thing I can think of is piping gel and red food coloring Maybe placed in small zip lock bag so when you cut into it oozes Just a thought HTH

I've made bleeding cakes... it's a blast! I decorated the sides of the cake as usual, but damed the top as you would for filling between layers. Filled the top dam with raspberry or strawberry filling and carefully covered with a fondant "lid". Decorate the top as you would for any cake. When the cake is cut, it oozes beautifully! I've made bleeding rounds & sheets, and am making another tonight that will bleed. Have fun with it, just go a little heavy on the filling... Have fun& please post pics & updates of the bleeding adventure!
