1 box red velvet cake mix, plus ingredients to make them
16oz cream cheese
1 cup sugar
8oz tub cool whip
2 cups water
3 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 tablespoon corn starch
red & blue food coloring
Prepare cupcakes according to directions on box.
Mix candy glass ingredients together in a pot. Bring to a boil. Use a candy thermometer. Once temp reaches 300* pour sugar mixture on a sheet pan covered in foil (I've done it with or without foil and it didn't stick to bad to the pan). Candy glass takes about 2 hours to set. Once hard, use a meat tenderizer to break candy glass into shards.
Stab each cupcake with a glass shard.
Stir corn syrup and corn starch together and add 15 drops or more of red food coloring and 1 or 2 drops of blue until you've reached that rich blood color - do not add too much blue or your blood will turn purple. Drizzle or splatter blood over each cupcake.
