These cupcakes have seen better days!
I was inspired by this recipe from Martha Stewart, of all people. I used chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream icing. The sugar glass is made by heating sugar just short of caramelization. I added food colouring and made sugar glass in blue, green, orange and clear.

These cupcakes pay homage to the famous execution scene from Dario Argento's Suspiria (1977). A deranged murderer is on the loose in a ballet academy and ends up killing two birds (ballerinas) with one stone (stained glass ceiling). Suspiria is a brilliant, colourful, twisted movie that's a lot of fun to watch. It's about an American ballerina who moves to Munich to attend a prestigious ballet academy, when strange things start to happen...
Ouch, that's gotta hurt!
