bleeding cakes

Stabbed red velvet cupcakes
Made these mini knifes out of gum paste. Think adult edible play dough. I bought mine and dyed it myself using Wilton products.
Here is a recipe for all you Martha's out there:



  • 1 Lb Powdered Sugar Fine -10X plastic bag
    1 Packet Knox Gelatin
    2 TBS of Lemon juice
    3 TBS of Water
    1 Tsp of Glucose


    Add gelatin, water & juice over double boiler; dissolve about 5 to 7 minutes. Add glucose stir. Use a mixer with dough hook. Place sugar in mixer then add liquid mix until slightly together remove and knead. If it feels too sticky add a little more sugar. Wrap with plastic wrap and place in plastic bag, seal. Let rest over night.

THEN whip up some red velvet cakes and frost them with white/vanilla/cream cheese frosting of your choice. Squirt with a little red food coloring and let it drip a bit. Then stab away!
