Instagram user and baker @cakesbymarian_ whipped up this creation a few days ago and it's gone viral, grabbing a bunch of likes! In a video that posted, the baker revealed how she prepared the 'Blank Space' cake, starting with stacking the cake layers and covering them in buttercream frosting. She then pokes a hole out in the centre. Following that, she mixes water, corn syrup and red food dye, puts this in a plastic bag and inserts this into the hole.
To finish it, she covers the cake in buttercream, writes 'Black Space' on top and finally stabs the cake with a knife and it spurts out fake blood (which can be made easily with a fruit puree or sauce) all over the white layer.
The cake will remind Swifties of the scene in the video where Taylor stabs a cake a blood spills out of it dramatically.

Is it a bloody-good idea?
The cake is not for the faint-hearted for sure and we don't see too many people want to stab a birthday cake that bleeds. But Taylor Swift fans are sure to want a stab at the culinary creation!
