HOW DO YOU MAKE FAKE EDIBLE BLOOD?
You can make it a variety of ways like this recipe with chocolate sauce to freak people out. But, my favorite way to easily make fake edible blood? I'm recommending simply using Wilton brand Cookie Icing for this recipe. It makes for such an easy solution and tastes better than other weird concoctions.
I am also a fan of using Red Wilton Sparkle Gel, but it is best for making oozing blood vs. blood spatter. Here are some samples below:

To get the very best blood spatter going on there are two methods to alternate with.
Method one: Dip your brush into the prepared cookie icing and use your finger to help flick the the icing over the cupcake frosting.
