I wanted to share this little indulgence in the kitchen with you. It was for a Halloween bake-off. I didn't win the contest, however, I don't think any of the other contestants had as much fun as I did preparing their entries.
This idea comes from Easy Baked.
I used a different recipe for the cupcakes and icing but Easy Baked glass and blood are PERFECT.
This is the glass, cooling on parchment paper. I wasn't happy with my first batch and redid it.
I found that spraying the parchment left a bit of a residue on the glass candy. My second batch was much better. I let it harden on a silicone sheet. When done I used the heel of a kitchen knife to shatter the glass.
I couldn't resist taking this picture. No one was hurt. It is delicious though.
Red velvet cupcakes are sooooo pretty.
Here is my display. I made the skulls using easy melts and a mould.
