"Broken Glass" Cupcakes for Halloween

I wanted to make some cupcakes for Halloween so when I saw this in the most recent Tesco magazine I decided I wanted to try them out!

I used my standard cupcake recipe which never fails me! You can see this here.
I used a mixture of green yellow and red icing which made them sort of a coral colour.

I then piped some green icing onto them using my Wilton 2D nozzle. You can find out more about how I ice my cupcakes here and a video tutorial here.

To make the ‘broken glass’ I melted some clear mints on a low heat in a saucepan for about 5 minutes. Once they had melted, I poured them onto some foil to set. They cooled off really quickly and when it was completely cool I broke it into ‘shards’ ready to stab into my cakes.

For the ‘blood’ icing, I simply mixed red food colouring, icing sugar and water and drizzled it on top of the cakes.
