Halloween: Bloody Broken Glass Cupcakes

Halloween Bloody Broken Glass Cupcakes

This Halloween cupcake decoration is one of the simplest one to make. The shattered glasses are made from candied sugar. Fake blood can be from a red jam such as raspberry or strawberry. Drops of red food coloring works too.

Ingredients for the Broken Glass Shards:
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup corn syrup (clear)

Directions: How to make broken glass cupcakes?

1. In a medium pot, add sugar, water and corn syrup. Mix it well.

2. Put on high heat. Once the mixture starts to boil, lower heat to medium.

3. Stir the edges to keep it from crusting. Continue to boil just as color begins to change.

4. Remove from heat and pour into a clean, smooth bottom baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 min - 1 hr.

5. When you're ready to decorate your cupcakes, just shatter the candied sheet in about 4 places. Peel off pieces and garnish on top of your cupcakes.

6. Usually, white frosting is best especially since it shows off red jam to simulate blood.
