Sweet And Delicious Shark Week Cupcakes

A monkey on a cupcake

We hope that our Shark Week Cupcakes take a little bite out of the fear that theses creatures can bring!

Yellow or white cupcakes, cooled 1 C unsalted sweet cream butter 3 C powder sugar 3 – 5 TBSP heavy whipping cream 1 tsp Vanilla bean paste blue food dye cupcake pan & blue liners Gummy shark candy graham cracker crumbs red food dye light corn syrup (clear)

You will need:

-Pour the graham cracker crumbs into a small bowl.  In another bowl take white frosting and add a few drops of the blue color. -Using the butter knife, slightly mix the frosting to make “water”.  -Using the plain frosting, frost 1/4 of the cupcake to make it smooth and flat.

-Dip the cupcake into the graham cracker crumbs.  -Using the knife with the “water” frosting, scoop some onto the non-frosted part of the cupcake. Take the knife and bring it up and down to make “rough waters”

-In a small cup, add 1/4 C of corn syrup and 2-3 drops of red food dye. Mix until combined.  -Place your shark gummy where ever you want onto the cupcake.  -Take a fork, dip the fork into the “blood” and splash it onto the cupcake to give a blood effect.
