This idea is gross. There’s no way around that. If you don’t want to think about squeamish things, don’t keep reading! But, if you need something for Halloween that is disgusting, then this is perfect for you!
In this tutorial, I show you how to make edible BLOOD! If blood covered cupcakes doesn’t revolt you enough, then definitely add our Heart and Brain Cupcakes to your dessert buffet. The combo of the two cupcakes is sure to scare and frighten people away from eating them! Who needs a diet when you serve bloody, heart and brain cupcakes?!?
To make the edible blood, all you need is corn syrup, chocolate sauce and red gel paste. You can get away without the chocolate sauce, but it adds a bit of flavour to the mixture, rather than the pure sugar rush of just using the corn syrup. Don’t worry, you’ll still get a sugar rush from this combination, it will just taste better! Also, the chocolate tames down the brightness of the red gel paste, which makes for a more realistic blood colour. I don’t have a ton of experience when it comes to blood, but I do know that it’s not fluorescent red when it comes out of my mishaps. Adding a small amount of chocolate helps with that.
If you want to add an additional element of gore factor, fill the middle of the cupcakes with a bright red cherry filling that will burst out when you first bite into the cupcake. I’m sure that will be gross enough for the goriest, gore lover! Also, teaming these cupcakes up with “broken” fingers, and “blood” filled syringes, like we have in the final shot of the video, will help make for the perfect Halloween scene. If you can handle it, that is!
