Hello everybody! After making my sandcastle cake earlier this week, I decided to continue the beach theme with cupcakes! For this tutorial, I’m demonstrating two fun designs— we’re making some cute little crabs, and a school of colorful fish!
First, let’s make some crabs. My base frosting is just piped on with a tip 12….
Next, we’re onto the school of fish—-a very special variety of lollipop fish! I used flat round lollipops and Dots candy for this project.
Any lollipop would actually work for this project–but I really had my mind set on the flat round ones. We tracked down a bag at a party supply store (Party City) after looking with no luck at grocery stores (how dare they not carry these lollipops!) :0) So be warned…you may have to go with a different variety of lollipop fish.
As you’ve seen in other posts, I like Dots candy because it rolls very easily into thin, colorful pieces. You can use your candy of choice..or even fruit roll ups…
