How To Make Beach Cupcakes:
I’m a big cupcake fan…easy portions and no kids arguing over who got the bigger piece. Plus, the decorating possibilities are endless and since I can’t make cakes, I love to have fun tricking mine out.
While browsing my local craft store, I came across these adorable, miniature sand pails and knew they would be perfect summer cake and cupcake toppers.
I love using floret baking cups from Bake It Pretty for cupcakes, they stand on their own with no need for a muffin pan. After frosting, finish them off by sprinkling crushed graham cracker ‘sand’ and stick in a drink umbrella.
How easy are these? These are guaranteed to bring a few giggles to your next soiree.
