Bake cupcakes in blue cupcake liners and cool completely.
Add 2 drops of blue food colouring to 1 cup of white icing and mix well. Add more colour if you want the water-coloured icing a brighter shade of blue.
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.
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.
Embellish each cupcake with a cocktail umbrella inserted on an angle on the beach half of the cake.
