I’ve seen a lot of cute beach themed cupcakes on Pinterest lately (like this one that I pinned over two years ago). Since we were headed down the shore for our family reunion, I decided to make a set to bring down!
Materials: ** Coupon mentions were live at time of posting
- Boxed Cupcake Mix and all the ingredients to create it
- Teddy Grahams
- Graham Crackers
- Fruit by the Foot or Fruit Roll Ups ($0.55/2 Betty Crocker Fruit by the Foot/Fruit Roll Ups – doubled at Shoprite)
- Vanilla Icing
- Blue Food Coloring
- Mini Drink Umbrella
- Cupcake Liners (Reynolds $0.55/1 printable coupon - doubled at Shoprite making it free!)
- Ziploc Bag, Kitchen Towel, Meat Tenderizer
Bake your cupcakes as directed on the box and allow to cool.
Mix blue food coloring in the icing to make an “water” for your cupcakes.
Place some graham crackers in a Ziploc bag and place in between a folded kitchen towel and use the meat tenderizer to create “sand” crumbs.
Apply a layer of blue “water” icing on the cupcake and sprinkle “sand” on one side.
Use kitchen food scissors to cut little strips of Fruit Roll Ups to make a little towel. Add a little bit of icing on the back and lay on the “sand”. Add a little icing on the back of a Teddy Graham and lay them on top. Insert some bears in the water like they’re swimming
Add a mini drink umbrella and voila your fun sand and sea cupcakes are complete!
