Instructions

    Bake cupcakes in blue cupcake liners and cool completely.

  3. 3

    Ice the top half of the cupcakes with blue-tinted frosting and the other half with white frosting. Add a layer of brown sugar to the white icing to resemble sand.

  4. 4

    Decorate the cupcakes with edible flip-flop and surfboard toppers, available at shopbakersnook.com. Add the flip-flops to the beach half and surfboard toppers on the blue-iced water half.

  5. 5

    Embellish each cupcake with a cocktail umbrella inserted on an angle on the beach half of the cake.
