This is the time of year when it seems like everyone is planning a trip to the beach. Going to the beach is the ultimate summertime activity, and it’s one of the best things to look forward to this time of year. Some people are lucky enough to live close to the ocean, but unfortunately where I live in Atlanta, it’s at best a 4-hour drive to any coast.
Today I was trying to think about how to bring that beachy-oceany feeling closer to home, and I think I’ve found it. And, of course, it involves a cupcake. These are the cutest little beach cupcakes I’ve ever seen. They have everything you need for your beach vacation right there on top of the cupcake.
If you want to make these for yourself, you can cut your time in half by buying some unfrosted cupcakes at the store. That way, all you have to do is create the beach scene on top. The sand, which looks so real, is created by crumbling graham crackers. You can do a search for beach cupcakes online, and tons of choices will come up. I’ve just chosen a few of my favorites for this article. To get the tutorials for these specific ones, you can click over to Simple Beach Cupcakes, Fun At The Beach or Beach Cupcakes. These look delicious, and they make me want to go to the beach even more!
