Murder Mystery Cake

This murder mystery cake is surprisingly easy to make.  Simply select your favorite cake mix and follow the instructions.  Pour into round cake pans and bake per box instructions.  Frost with white frosting.  Drizzle with fake blood (see below).  Stab a knife into the top of the cake.*

Fake blood recipe: Corn syrup, chocolate syrup and red food coloring.  The corn syrup gives it the look and texture of blood, the chocolate syrup makes it taste good and the red food coloring can be used to create a bright, fresh blood or a dark, oxidized blood depending on your taste.

* Stab with authority.  You can’t remove the knife and restab the cake or the knife will not stay upright and it ruins the effect!  If this cake is for a children’s party or a teen’s party (for Halloween or birthdays or whatever), use a plastic knife or a Halloween prop to ensure no one is injured.  For adults, simply remove the sharp knife from the middle of the cake, cut slices and serve with a flourish!

Jakub Schikaneder Original Art: Murder in the House

Jakub Schikaneder Original Art - Murder in the HouseJakub Schikaneder (1855 – 1924) was best known for his soft paintings of the outdoors.  He regularly featured the poor and outcast.  He often painted the alleyways and corners of Prague. (Wikipedia)  Here, in Murder in the House, Schikaneder has chosen the unusual subject of the murder of a commoner on the street.  We don’t know anything about the victim or how or why she was murdered, but we immediately recognize the inexplicable, macabre urge to congregate around the scene of a crime.
