Edible Fake Blood Recipe



  • 1 tbsp cornflour


  • 45ml cherry juice or water


  • 250g glucose syrup


  • red, blue and yellow food coloring gel


Mix the cornflour with 1 tbsp cherry juice, then tip the mixture into a small pan with the glucose syrup and remaining cherry juice.

Heat gently over a low heat, whisking well to combine, then remove from the heat.


Squeeze in a generous amount of the red food colouring gel and stir well, then add a very small drop each of the blue and yellow food colouring gels and stir again.

You are aiming for a deep red-brown blood colour.

Continue adding little drops of food colouring, stirring well between each addition, until you reach your desired colour.

The edible fake blood will keep in a sealed jar in the fridge for up to three weeks.

This recipe makes a thick, slow-running gel.

If you want a thinner gel, simply stir in a little more cherry juice or water.
