This past week I have been on vacation down at the beach taking in some rays and having some fun out in the water. Whenever we come down to the beach we always have a cute themed treat or two to enjoy as well. This vacation my friend Kristin made these adorable beach cupcakes for all of us to enjoy. Instead of having each individual cupcake as a beach she took all of them and made it into one big beach with chocolate shells in the water and umbrellas out on the sand. We have been enjoying them all week and they have been delicious! Even if you aren't at the beach you can still make your own beach cupcakes by following the directions below. Enjoy!

  • cupcake mix (any kind will do)
  • white icing
  • blue food coloring
  • graham crackers (finely crumbled)
  • decorations (drink umbrellas, chocolate shells, gummy lifesavers, etc.)

  1. Prepare the cupcakes according to the directions on the box.
  2. Once cooked and cooled get ready to decorate! Take your icing and color it to the desired blue you want. Put the icing into a piping bag and ice your cupcakes like you normally would any other cupcake.
  3. For those that you want to create a beach on take your graham cracker crumbles and gently pat them onto the top of your icing.
  4. For the final touch take your cocktail umbrellas, chocolate shells and other decorations and add them onto your cupcakes to create your beach scene and enjoy!

What is your favorite beach themed treat? Have a great weekend!!
