bloody glass cupcakes 004

Make the cupcakes as directed and set aside to cool, then frost with the white icing.

Glass: In a large pot, bring the water, liquid glucose, sugar and cream of tartar to the boil. Do not stir. Have a metal tray lined with non-stick baking paper on stand by and keep an eye on the sugar mixture, it will take around 10 minutes to reach 150C or 300F. If you don’t have a candy thermometer, keep a bowl of chilled ice water on hand and drop a tsp of the mixture into the cold water, it should go rock hard instantly. When it’s reached temperature, carefully pour it onto the tray to set. When it’s cool, break it apart in shards with the handle of a heavy knife.

Blood: Mix the liquid glucose with the cornflour and then gradually add water until it’s a blood-like consistency. You don’t want it too thick or it won’t drip down the cupcakes but you don’t want it too runny either. Add about 8 drops of red food colouring and 1 drop of blue and mix together.

Decorate the cakes with the shards and drizzle over the blood! Hopefully your guests won’t be too scared to eat them……..
