Bleeding Human Heart
(inspired by Penn & Teller’s Bleeding Heart)
First of all, find your mold. I found mine a couple years ago atSecond,
Spencer’s Gifts around Halloween season. It came with a very similar
recipe, but not any instructions to make it bleed.
thoroughly wash your mold, especially all the detail where the veins
are. When completely dry, spray the mold with non-stick cooking
spray. You’ll see below that Penn & Teller used a Valentine’s Day-
style heart-shaped cake pan…I think using the human heart mold
improves on their concept one-hundred percent…!
My human heart mold isn’t large enough to handle the whole Penn &
Teller recipe, so I halved the following recipe…I also altered the
blood by using raspberry syrup and Chambord raspberry liqueur
instead of the grenadine, since I was using raspberry gelatin. After
the mold is set, I turn out the heart and set it on a crystal
pedestal plate and use food coloring and a small brush to accent the
veins. I even use red food coloring to shade the contours (it really
does make a difference).
I use my large Psycho-style butcher knive
to sever and serve, as they suggest below.
