I will be doing the "eyeball in claw" cake for a birthday party on 17 October. The customer requested that when they cut the cake they would like to see it "bleed". I thought of adding strawberry sauce as a filling. Would that be enough? I will use the soccer ball pan so the cake is medium size but just a filling of strawberry sauce seems to be too little "blood"? Then I thought of making a chocolate shell (like an easter egg) and filling that with sauce and placing that in the middel of the cake when assembling the two halves. What would you suggest?? Has anyone done this before and what worked for you?

Lekker om Afrikaans te sien!!!!!!! thumbs_up.gif

I think your idea of a "Easteregg" filled with sauce sounds good!...Sounds quite gory!!

I made a fear factor cake where theeyeballs lies in blackpot ful of "blood". I used thinned Royal Icing, coloured red, for the blood. I pours niceley, but hardens a bit, so it won't work inside the cake....unless you maybe poke holes in the cake(like veins) and then fill them with this?

AWESOME!! I wish I had an occasion to make that! I doubt any of my family would even touch it tho, they are all chicken.

Did some more hunting, and found a frosting-lined cavity, filled with either raspberry sauce or pureed cherry pie filling.
