This week I’m devoting to cupcakes. Specifically, I’m sharing the Summer cupcake ideas I made for Celebrations. More specifically, you can already find them all over at Celebrations, but I’m still devoting 5 separate posts to them because gosh dang it, I like them and they each deserve some spotlight. I made all these in March when there was still a chill in the air, but I’m a beach person. I could put myself in the mindset. I’ve mentioned this a jillion times, but my family is a beach family. My grandfather was a lighthouse keeper on the Jersey shore, and my grandfather rescued lots o’ people as a lifeguard. Yep, I grew up with sand in my peanut butter and jelly. (No, really, that’s what we’d pack for the beach and it always had the crunch of sand. That and little cans of apple juice that got coated in the stuff, too.)
These crab cupcakes are super easy to make. You just need cupcakes, red frosting, candy eyes and Twizzlers Pull N’ Peel licorice. With the legs in the way, I found it best to pipe the frosting on with a decorating bag. You can probably also use a Zip-top bag with the corner snipped if you don’t want to get all technical.
If you like these, you might also like these gumdrop crab and fish cupcake toppers I made last year.
