I used a box chocolate cake mix for the cupcakes (and added an extra egg, plus a teaspoon of vanilla-- it makes the mix taste more 'homemade'). After letting them cool completely, I iced them with a can of cream cheese icing. A few drops of blue food coloring made this pretty turquoise color.
Next I dipped the tops of the cupcakes into blue sprinkles.
Then added a Teddy Graham bear into a LifeSavers Gummies . Pretty cute huh?
I also sat each cupcake in another cupcake wrapper. You know how when you bake them in wrapper, the wrapper gets a little messy. So placing them in a new, crisp wrapper makes them look more 'finished'. It's all in the details right?!
The cupcakes were a hit at the party. And my daughter and I had a lot of fun making them together. Which is really what it is all about.
