Looking for a recipe for fake blood? It’s easy to mix together, using ingredients you probably already have in the kitchen. This blood is edible – delicious, even – perfect for everything from gory cakes, cookies and cupcakes, to pumpkins and even as added gore for your Halloween costume.
All you’ll need is corn syrup and red food coloring – a drop of blue makes it a little more realistic, and a spoonful of strawberry jam (cherry works too – raspberry has seeds in it – a dead giveaway!) to make it look thicker and clottier.
Go easy on the blue – one teeny drop to several drops of red will do it. Stir it together and store in a squeeze bottle – or spoon into a zip-lock baggie and snip off a tip, then squeeze out.
