Broken Glass Cupcakes
How to make some spooky and fun Broken Glass Cupcakes this Halloween!
Manuela Zangara + Decoration inspired by Martha Stewart
– 1 2/3 cup flour
– ½ cup sugar
pumpkin spice mix
– ½ cup vegetable oil
– 1/3 cup milk
Caramel Glass and Blood
– ½ cup sugar
– ¼ cup water
– ½ cup butter
– 1 scant cup icing sugar
Combine all the dry ingredients and then add all the remaining ingredients.
Stir just until combined and then fill the cupcake liners 3/4 full.
Bake them in a pre heated oven at 200°C – 400°F for 16-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Let them cool down completely.
Bring the granulated sugar and water to a boil in a small high-sided saucepan, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.
Reduce the heat to medium-high, and cook until the mixture just starts to turn pale gold around the edges.
Quickly remove from heat (or the “glass” will look yellow) and immediately pour the caramel onto a rimmed baking sheet lined with baking paper.
Working quickly, tilt the baking sheet to spread the caramel to make a very thin layer. Let it cool and harden. Then break it into pieces.
Beat the softened butter with an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment for a few minutes and then incorporate the icing sugar and vanilla extract. Mix well.
Pipe the buttercream onto the cooled cupcakes, top them with a piece of “glass” each and drizzle some strawberry syrup “blood” where the caramel has entered the cupcake.
