Make a batch of cupcake boats for a nautical-enthusiast or a pirate-themed birthday party. You can decorate the cupcakes to coordinate with the colour scheme of the party and top them with fondant sails in a complementary colour. Serve the cupcakes on an edible sea by covering a cake tray with blue buttercream icing.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Roll out a package of fondant to a thickness of between 1/4 inch and 1/8 inch. Use a small triangle-shaped cookie cutter to cut shapes from the fondant. Place the fondant triangles on a piece of waxed paper. Insert a toothpick into one flat end of each triangle. Let the fondant dry for 24 hours.

  2. 2

    Add the ingredients for a store-bought or homemade cake mix to a medium-size mixing bowl and prepare the cake mix according to the recipe or instructions.

  3. 3

    Place paper cupcake liners into a regular cupcake pan and divide the cake batter evenly between the liners. Bake according to recipe or cake mix directions.

  4. 4

    Cool the cupcakes in the pan for a few minutes and then take them out to cool completely on a clean surface.

  5. 5

    Cover the top of each cupcake with a thick layer of buttercream icing in the colour of your choice. You can spread the icing on with an icing spatula or fill a pastry bag with star icing tip with the icing and make a make a design over the top of each cupcake.

  6. 6

    Insert one toothpick into the centre of each cupcake to make a fondant sail for each cupcake boat.

  7. 7

    Spread a thick layer of blue buttercream icing onto a plastic cake tray and make peaks in the icing with the icing spatula for waves. Arrange the cupcakes on the tray to make a fleet of cupcake boats.
