I'm making a True Blood cake for a party this weekend. I wanted to make blood drips over the side of the cake. Kind of like its running over the edge. Not sure if I should paint something or pour something.....

No idea.

I use piping gel colored red. It works really well.

Example of a piping gel blood drip cake.
You can also warm red jelly, or use a red glace icing. If it looks too light, try just a drop or two of blue coloring.

I once melted red buttercream frosting in the microwave for a few seconds and then drizzled it where I needed "blood" to be.
