Beach Day Cupcakes
- Prepared Cupcakes, any flavor
- 1 Container Vanilla Frosting
- 6-8 Graham Crackers, crushed
- 1 pkg. Sour Patch Kids
- 1 pkg. Gum Balls
- Air Heads Candy, variety of flavors
- Drink Umbrellas
- 1 pkg. Pez Candy
Frost the cupcakes and sprinkle crushed graham crackers all over to resemble sand.
Cut small rectangular pieces of the Air Heads candy for the beach towels.
Lay a beach towel on each cupcake and lay a Sour Patch kid on each towel.
Place an umbrella, a gumball, and 2 little Pez candies on each cupcake. These resemble a volleyball/ball and a pair of flip flops.
An optional step: use an edible writing pen to dot on eyes and a mouth on the sour patch kids and draw little straps on the Pez candy so they look more like flip flops.
Fun and great for summer parties!
