I want to make a halloween cake that is 2 layers. I need "blood" to be oozing from the top layer unto the bottom layer. Any ideas on how to make this happen?

Jennifer,

Buddy (Cake Boss) has done something similar. Check out his website because I don't know how he did it. I just remember seeing a picture that he recently did for a Halloween cake.

Good luck and post a pic when you finish it.

I made blood for the sword cake in my photos out of red gel color mixed with piping gel.

Add a bit of chocolate syrup or powdered coco (to make it dark red) to corn syrup and liquid red food coloring. The gel doesn't work as well.

I've made the jello mold Zombie head where you cut into a green brain and blood oozes out.  The 'blood' was made with dark cherry jello and raspberry jam.  Add a little water to the jam so it is a bit runny.  Mix up a bit of the jello, you won't need much - maybe a tablespoon - with a little boiling water till all dissolved.  Combine the two.  Gives a very dark red 'blood' that stays fluid but not too runny if you don't use a lot.
