To make your own, start by trimming some red velvet cake rounds into a human heart shape. Add buttercream icing for that fresh-out-of-the-morgue-freezer look...

...and apply fondant veins to really get the blood moving.

Finally, apply raspberry jam blood sauce for a cake everyone will fall in "love" with.
