Shark Cupcakes Perfect for Shark Week

It’s Shark Week! Time to gather the family around the television and learn about those amazing sea creatures that have been attacking Carolina swimmers recently. I can’t wait to watch and learn about this fascinating fish. In honor of this week, I decided to make my family these amazing shark cupcakes perfect for Shark Week. They are a simple and fun dessert that kids will absolutely love.

Shark Cupcakes

Shark Cupcakes only need a few ingredients. You will need blue cake mix, blue icing, teddy bear crackers, shark gummy’s and candy ringers. I found the shark gummy’s and peach ringer candies at Walmart in the candy aisle. I had never seen shark gummy’s and I had to do a little dance when I stumbled across them.

Shark Cupcake Supplies

To start, you will want to bake your cupcakes as directed on the box. If you can’t find blue cake mix, then you can use white cake mix and blue icing. After the cupcakes have cooled, then you can ice them.

Shark Cupcakes Steps

After the cupcakes have been iced, place a teddy bear in one of the peach ringers and then place onto the cupcake. You will then place a gummy shark on top of the cupcake in front of the floating bear. Simple right? On a side note, I used a black edible ink pen to give my sharks eyes.
