Look how cute these cupcakes are! Perfect for summer treats!
I made them by making basic cupcakes (any recipe will do, or even a (gasp!) box mix!). I then whipped up some basic butter cream frosting:
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter (softened)
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 tbsp milk
Use blue food coloring to tint your frosting. I didn't stir mine thoroughly so that there would be some white caps in my "water".
Frost the cupcakes and then sprinkle half of the cupcake with crushed graham crackers to make a sandy beach. You can also use brown sugar, but you will have to eat them right away because the sugar will dissolve into your frosting water.
Decorate your beach with drink umbrellas, sour balls (for beach balls), Teddy Graham Bears and Life Saver candies as floaties.
Use your imagination!
