Life's a Beach Party!

The second dessert I brought for the Teacher Appreciation "Beach Party"  was "Beach" cupcakes.  It's amazing how you can fit a whole story on the top of a little piece of cake!  I started with two batches of cupcakes - one yellow and one chocolate.  As you can see, the cupcakes, while tasty, looked like they had been through a hurricane!

Fortunately, it was not something that a thick layer of piped on cream cheese frosting couldn't cover!

To create the beach, my next step was to dip the cupcakes in a bowl of graham cracker crumbs.

Finally, I topped each cupcake with a drink umbrella.  

A little gummie bear relaxes under the umbrella inside a gummie lifesaver "floatie".

How easy is that?
