In honor of Valentine's Day and the mid-season premiere of The Walking Dead, I made a realistic bloody heart cake. I was never a fan of gore and zombies but The Walking Dead is a fantastic show! So for all my fellow Walking Dead fans this Valentine's Day, this dessert is for you!
I made this by using:
-Cupcakes (whatever flavor you like)
-red fondant (I purchased mine at Walmart)
-red food coloring
Knead your fondant and roll it out with a rolling pin. Make sure you roll out enough to cover the cupcake. On the bottom of the cupcake spread some frosting and place in the center of the fondant you just rolled out(this keeps it secure). Then begin to cover the cupcake with the fondant. Don't worry about making it super perfect because the imperfections will make it look more realistic. At the top of the cake make three funnels to look like arteries. You can look at some heart images online to try to make it look accurate(I tried my best). Next mix a little bit of red food coloring and cherry jam. Then paint the cake with the jam(this step really makes it look gory).
Then you are finished with you bloody heart cake! Enjoy!
