No, there's no crystal meth in this recipe.
Just lots of sugar.  haha




First of all, about two months ago, I started dating this amazing guy.  About a week after dating him, I found out that he's on craftster, too....and I'd even seen one of his posts!!
My boyfriend is Greg.Matta, and he made the ever-so-popular Grilltendo! (here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350201.0, if you're curious)

He's not SUPER crafty, but he does like to craft now and then, which is pretty awesome.  Smiley



For our friend Danielle's birthday (who is his best friend, and one of my close ones), we decided that we wanted to do something special for her.
Once a week, we all have a Breaking Bad night where we go over to her house and watch the show.  I had the bright idea of doing a Breaking Bad cake for her (if you're a fan of the show, you'll know that Breaking Bad is famous for its blue crystal meth, which is what I wanted to top the cake with, lol), and the boyfriend wanted to help.  Eventually, we decided that cupcakes would be a bit easier, and so that's what we settled on.

It especially helps that my boyfriend went to culinary school for a little while.  Smiley

Here's the finished product:





They were a bit difficult to eat, for two reasons--one, it's hard candy on top of a cupcake.  It's more for decoration than for practicality.  And two, it was really humid out when we served them at our friend's outdoor birthday party, so the hard candy got a little sticky.  >___O
Overall though, she loved them.


Here are a few more in-process photos, and a semi-how-to:



Greg, stirring the sugar



Temperature rising...



Note the splattered sugar ALL over the stovetop! 
If we do this again, we're using a deeper saucepan  >___O



Pouring the culinary napalm (onto a baking sheet that we first coated in vegetable oil, then dusted with a light layer of flour)



Pulling it off the sheet once it was dry (and after this, we put it all in a Ziploc bag and smashed it with a hammer until the pieces we small enough)



The finished product!



The finished product getting a little melt-y!



Oh, and BLUE MARSHMALLOW FLUFF FILLING!!






HOW-TO:

Well...it's a little tough to do a how-to, considering we can't find any of the recipes we used, heh.
All we really did for the rock candy part was google recipes for hard candy.  We added some blue food dye, and that was really about it.
For the cupcake batter, we used a recipe from a cook book his mom had....problem is, we made the cupcakes while we were visiting her in Rhode Island...we live in CT, and didn't take the book back, so I don't have a recipe for the cupcakes...although any recipe for a vanilla cupcake would work, I'm sure.
The filling was just marshmallow fluff, straight out of the tub, mixed with blue food dye and injected into the cupcake with a piping bag.  The frosting was store bought.





I hope you like them--please let us know what you think! Smiley
