Bikini Beach Bears

Bikini Beach Bear Cupcakes [1]

Well, today is the first day of summer and what could be better than going to the beach? A beach cupcake! That way, I don’t even have to get into a bathing suit. (Not to mention, I’m not near the beach, so this will have to do.) Aren’t these little bears just too cute. And they’re pretty tasty, too. Here’s what I used:

  • Cupcakes and frosting (tinted blue)
  • Blue baking cups [2]
  • Cocktail umbrellas [3]
  • Bears – Honey Teddy Grahams [4] and I just used a candy writer [5] to draw their tiny little bathing suits on with a toothpick. For the faces, I used an edible ink pen [6]. (I keep finding new uses for this thing. I love it.)
  • Inner tubes – Lifesavers Gummies [7]
  • Towels and floats – Fruit Roll Ups [8]
  • Beach Balls – small gumballs
  • Beach sand – Okay, this is difficult to look at. For the weak at heart, close your eyes. I’m sorry to say I had to sacrifice a few little teddy bears. They tried their best to escapeā€¦
“Please save us!”

Check back tomorrow for part two of this sweet summer kickoff!

Thanks to the book, Hello, Cupcake! [10] for inspiring me to use common candies in uncommon ways.
