How can I make exploding cupcakes?
this is for my halloween costume this year (i won't say what it is until i finish it and put up an instructable of my own, haha!)
i had two ideas for explosive tasty confections: either using little firecrackers as candles, or putting some type of exploding pellet or capsule inside the cupcakes that would explode on impact.
a friend told me about something that may or may not contain mercury, or i suppose it could have been magnesium since it's so flammable...it comes in little spheres/pellets/capsules that probably contain some of the same ingredients as flash powder, only in a more concentrated form. if such a thing exists, i would just bake cupcakes and squish the capsules into the bottoms of the cupcakes.
i'm open to any other ideas. help please!
