An awesome friend of mine, Caid Rhymes, does this really killer youtube show called “Outback Gorehouse” where he and his co-host go through a multitude of how-to’s for special affects for movies or Halloween or whatever you really need them for. One of the special affects that Caid and his co-host, Sonya, video recorded for their show was fake edible blood. It was as though the video was just MADE for me! Ha! As an amateur foodie and food blogger, this recipe was an absolute dream come true.
I decided to bake a cake so that I could practice using different icing tips and also see what I could do with this edible blood. I used cake mix from a box, generic frosting from a can (there’s a generic brand that is thicker than the name brands and perfect for practice and even tastes better), and the ingredients for the blood…Nothing spectacular, since this was just an experiment and a means for practice.
For the edible blood recipe, I’ll just let the experts show you how it’s done!
The only thing that I did differently was that I added just one drop of almond extract to the blood because I thought that chocolate/almond/vanilla on the butter recipe cake mix would be absolutely awesome…and I was right! Without the almond, though, the blood was soooooooo good and I thought that it would make a great ice cream topping for a Halloween Ice Cream social next year.
So, without further ado, I give you my masterpiece…
Also, for good measure, you should all check out the trailer for Caid’s new film, Dark Are The Woods! <—- There is the link to the facebook page. You should all go there, like the page, and show them some support :)
