Bloody Broken Glass Cupcake – Best Cheap Easy Halloween Party Food Dessert


Candy Glass:

  1. Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper and spray the wax paper liberally with non-stick spray. Place granulated sugar and corn syrup into a microwave safe bowl and mix them together. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 3 minutes.
  2. Remove from Microwave and CAREFULLY remove plastic wrap (beware of hot steam!) Stir well and re-cover with fresh plastic wrap. Microwave on high for another 3 minutes, but watch mixture after about 2 minutes. Because microwaves vary, you need to watch it to make sure it doesn’t start to turn color. If you cook it too long it will be an amber color instead of the nice clear glass you want. My microwave was perfect at 2 and 1/2 minutes.
  3. CAREFULLY remove from microwave and CAREFULLY remove plastic wrap. This is soooo hot and sticky– using caution to not touch any of the hot candy, pour it out over the greased wax paper and allow it to sit and harden completely (at least a couple of hours)
  4. When candy glass is hard, tap a knife tip into glass to break it into sharp pieces.  Carefully (the pieces are actually sharp!) push pieces up off of wax paper and onto a plate. Candy glass can be kept in a zip top bag or an air tight container for about a week. Moisture (including the moisture from the frosting on the cupcakes) will eventually start to break the glass down.

Edible Blood:

  1. Place sweetened condensed milk into a small bowl and mix in red food color gel and flavoring until you get a brilliant red color. Add a TINY bit of black (use a toothpick- black goes a long way!). Mix and adjust until you get a nice dark red color. Spoon “blood” into a zip-top bag and seal TIGHTLY. Keep refrigerated until use.


  1. Make cake mix according to box (swapping in cake mix “fix” ingredients if desired) Divide equally into 24 cupcake liners in cupcake tins. Bake at 350F degrees according to times on box. Remove cupcakes from oven and cool completely.


  1. On medium speed, beat together cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and salt until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until smooth. Melt white chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between, until smooth. Add melted white chocolate to icing and beat on low until completely combined. Place in a zip-top bag fitted with a decorating tip and pipe frosting on top of cooled cupcakes.


  1. Put parchment paper on a counter to protect it from all that red food coloring. [or- use a large platter or tray that you will serve the cupcakes on- blood splatter and all!] Place frosted cupcakes on protected surface and press 2 to3 pieces of glass into the top of each. Clip the corner on the bag of edible blood and drizzle over the top of the glass and the cupcakes, allowing it to drip down the sides of both. Serve the same day after decorating. Use care transporting and serve with plates and forks, or you will all have red fingers!!
