Beach Day Cupcakes


ingredients for beach day cupcakes


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.
