Broken Glass Cupcakes

Here’s a popular dessert idea that I have used at my party quite a few times over the years. Make some red velvet cupcakes with white cream cheese frosting. Now make a batch of clear sugar glass. If you don’t know how to do that it’s really quite easy. Find a recipe here. After that’s all done break the glass into pieces. I usually do this by dropping the sheet of glass while it’s still in the baking pan onto the floor. It will break into a bunch of glass like shards. Take the broken pieces and randomly stick them into the cupcakes then sprinkle edible blood (see recipe below) over the glass and cupcakes. They turn out yummy and look awesome.

1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp red food coloring
Few drops blue food coloring

If the mixture is too thin stir in a teaspoon of corn starch, whisking rapidly to thin out any lumps or you can leave it to settle for a while and skim the lumps off the top. Obviously you can up the recipe if you are making lots of cupcakes, but this will get you started.

Brain Cupcakes

When I was a kid we always colored eggs for Easter and built gingerbread houses for Christmas. I always thought we should do something special for Halloween. Halloween was not a big thing in our house and my parents were never interested in doing anything special. For many years my daughter and I have made cookies shaped like headstones, but this year we have something more fun planned. We are making Brains Cupcakes and maybe the Zombie Cupcakes that they also make. Come on people! Start a tradition with your kids and make something special so they will always remember that Halloween is so much cooler than Christmas and Easter. They are available at your nearest Cost Plus/World Market and here.

Cat Spatula

Okay, I know I claim to love all things Halloween and most of the time I do. I really have a hard time during the Halloween season. I usually want to buy just about everything I see. However, that was not the case today when I saw this Cat Spatula at Crate and Barrel. I guess it’s cute, but I think they’ve gone a little too far with the Halloween themed items. I mean, come on you might as well go all the way and have Halloween themed baby wipes or even a Halloween themed power strip. No one is going to see this spatula, but the person who’s baking something and the inside of the dishwasher. The pattern is not even on the handle part. It’s just a tiny cat on the tip of the plastic part. Come on you product developing ass wipes! Nothing wrong with some creativity, but at least use your brain. Does the world really need Halloween themed foot powder?

Zombie Cupcakes

I’m not a cupcake kinda girl. They taste okay, I guess, but in the end they are just tiny cakes. I’m not wild about plain cake. I like fillings. I know that you can get cupcakes with fillings, but I find they are usually too sweet. I’m more of a muffin kinda girl. (yeah, I know) Whenever I see a cupcake it reminds me of some pajamas I had when I was little. They were bright pink and covered in pink, purple, light blue and yellow cupcakes. Clearly I did not pick it out. I hated it, but my Mom loved it. Lately cupcakes have become so popular with stores opening up everywhere selling just cupcakes. Well, I happened across this book called Zombie Cupcakes at the bookstore the other day and I actually (gasp!) bought it. The recipes sounded pretty good and who can resist a good zombie cupcake? I especially like the ones with body parts because for the few minutes it takes to eat it you can actually pretend you are a zombie. I have no real desire to become one, but the idea of biting off someone’s arm or leg does sound attractive sometimes.
