Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and mix for ten seconds, or whisk in a bowl until gloopy and sticky. Now you have non-toxic and edible fake blood!

Method:
Using almost the same ingredients for fake blood (but replacing cordial with peanut butter), combine all of the ingredients in a blender and mix for 10 seconds. Smear blood as desired. To make the blood gorier, mash Paw Paw cream into the mixture. For dirt effects, add coffee granules or Vaseline. Use ripped tissue to create flaky dead skin and apply with non-toxic, water-soluble glue to apply to skin.
