We had a little pool party after the kids swim lessons this week. I hadn't planned ahead (very unlike me), so of course I headed directly to Pinterest for inspiration and came upon adorable Beach Party Cupcakes from Better Homes & Gardens.
They were so quick and easy to make, I was able to whip them up the morning of their swim lessons.
I made plain vanilla cupcakes, then mixed a little Sky Blue Wilton Icing with vanilla frosting to make the water. Then using a tube of Wilton Light Blue Sparkle Gel I piped on the waves. I topped each cupcake with cherry flavored gummy Life Savers … the kids helped by eating the other flavors in the packet as we looked for cherry ones.
