Do they want it to look like it is oozing, or ooze at the party?

 

If it just needs to look like it, decorate accordingly.

 

If they want it to ooze during the party, Thin a jelly or curd filling with corn syrup.  Seal the cake with buttercream  and a thick dam around the edges.  Fill with thinned filling.   Decorate as normal.

 

When they want the cake to ooze, they just need to skewer it in the spots you will mark for them so that the filling can come out.

They weren't very clear about the oozing part. They asked that it look like dead, peeling zombie skin on the outside..and ooze green filling from a red velvet cake. They left it put one as to how to make it ooze. A friend suggested I hollow out the cake and replace the hollow spots with modeling chocolate filled with dyed Bavarian cream. I'm not sure that would work..I don't want the cake to fall apart cutting away parts of it. All my cakes are scratch cake so they have a little more crumb to them.
