I will be making red velvet vampire cupcakes for a party and need a good recipe for 'blood', thick enough to not run too much and not too transparent - but tasty.
Any ideas?

Royal icing dyed red - you can adjust the consistency with water.

I have used corn syrup with red food coloring....a little more realistic, but can be a bit runny. Piping gel will work as well, but doesn't taste very well.

I was told by a friend who does make-up for films to make sure to add a touch of green to the red to make it more realisitic.

The piping gel will dry enough so it doesn't run but it will still be tacky to the touch.
