I've been seeing these adorable cupcakes on pinterest which are perfect for summer. They have a beach and pool theme and am so glad we tried making them. These cupcakes are super easy, super fun to make/decorate and of course super delicious to eat!
Here's what you'll need to make these cupcakes:
- Blue icing, the funfetti is what we used which was perfect because it included the fish sprinkles.
- Cake mix, any boxed kind will do.
- Teddy grahams
- Graham crackers
- Gummy ring candy
- Cocktail umbrellas
- bake the cake mix according to box instructions
- cool and ice cupcakes
- crush a sleeve of graham crackers
The next part is the most fun! Definitely recruit the kids to help decorate these cupcakes! Once the icing is on, you can make some cupcakes a beach theme. Do this by dipping the icing into the crushed graham crackers. Lay your bear down in the sand, add a beach umbrella and voila! A sun bathing teddy graham! Or you can stick to a pool theme and just add a teddy graham to the inside of a gummy candy ring and insert into the icing and you have a bear chillin' in the pool! You could also use gummy life savers to act as the tube for the bears. I've also seen fruit by the foot used as a beach towel! Let your imagination run wild!
Adding on the 'sand'
My daughter could not get enough of decorating these and my son and his friends did a fantastic job of devouring a half dozen of them in no time at all!!
