Amber's birthday was a few days ago so I had Lisa and Stephanie come over to help me decorate beach-themed cupcakes. I made the sharks out of twinkies and the lifesavers out of powdered doughnuts. Both were dipped in microwaved frosting to get that smooth look. I wish I could say I was creative enough to think it up myself but I have to give credit to my new best friend, my "Hello, Cupcake" book. Check out their website at www.hellocupcakebook.com Other than that we used crushed graham crackers for the sand and the little sandals Stephanie made out of licorice candies. I was going to put umbrellas in there too, but I couldnt find them at the store.
