Edible fake blood

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Makes: 300ml

1 tbsp cornflour
45ml cherry juice or water
250g glucose syrup
red, blue and yellow food colouring gel

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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 redbrown 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
