If you’re new to the blog you may not know I have a cake business Handmade Queen of Cakes. My lovely sister now does about 80% of the cakes as blogging becomes more & more my career.
As it’s coming up to Halloween I thought I’d share with you some of my Halloween inspired cakes from last year and the super simple tip on how to make edible blood.
I just love what I do, being able to be creative is amazing especially when you have customers that trust you to come up with fabulous designs. I always make everything by hand and where possible everything will be edible too, from the Jack Skellington model to the fake blood, you can eat the lot!!I love making models but they do take such a long time, not only in the actual modelling but because you have to give each stage enough time to dry & harden up otherwise they’d end up broken or mis-shaped.
Edible blood is one of the easiest things to make, if you find you ever need edible blood for cupcakes or cake decorating etc (zombies are for life not just for Halloween) then simply add red food colouring gel to golden syrup. It’s got to be gel & not liquid food colouring otherwise it’ll be far too runny and won’t have the thick blood like consistency. PS this is for food only as it will stain the skin or clothes & just generally be a sticky mess!
So which is your favourite cake, are you more fun or gory?
