Cupcake
1 box vanilla cake mix
1 box vanilla pudding
½ cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
3 eggs

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until combined. Fill cupcake cups about ¾ full of batter. Put in the 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. Let cool.

Blueberry Compote

2 cups of blueberries
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp lemon juice

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Let boil on low heat for 10 minutes. Let cool.

Frosting

1 cup salted butter, room temp
5 cups confectioners sugar
¼ cup heavy cream
2 tsp vanilla extract

Combine salt and sugar with an electric beater. Add in cream and vanilla extract and mix until frosting is firm.

Sugar glass

2 cups granulated white sugar
¾ cup water
⅔ cup light corn syrup
Coloring if desired (blue or violet works best)

Combine sugar, syrup, and water in a saucepan. Stir constantly and bring the mixture up to 300 degrees with a candy thermometer. Add in coloring if desired. Pour onto a greased cookie sheet and let sit until hard, about an hour. Place a piece of waxed paper over the candy and crack into shards with a hammer.

After the cupcakes have cooled, scoop out a small inch hole from the center of each cupcake and fill with blueberry compote. Pipe the frosting on top and decorate with candy shards, lollypops, gumballs and granulated decorated sugars.
