Hey Folks, Here are some fun and easy cup cakes to make with Sharks.

I have a friend who loves Sharks (so much so they have a PhD in sharks) that I had to make these for them.

Now, there are many versions of shark cupcakes on the web, and I got the inspiration for these from photos on the web, and am I am not taking credit for coming up with them.

i have not found a tutorial on how to make them, so I hope you enjoy.

Take a Twinkie and cut off a 1/4.

Take a small round cookie and fashion it into a fin.

Stick the fin in the back of the Twinkie and stand up right.

Pour over grey icing till fully coated and place in the fridge.

Step 4: Sharp Teeth

Now take your fruit roll ups and cut out the mouth piece as shown.

With and icing pen begin to add teeth all the way around the fruit roll up.

This will take some time and require a little patience.

Step 5: Assemble

Take a cup cake and cut a small hole to one side. This needs to act like a cradle for the shark. Also, place a little icing at the bottom to help secure the shark.

Step 6: What good is a shark without eyes?

Step 7: Save Me

To make the life preservers, take one of the small doughnuts and place on top of a cup cake.

Coat in white icing.

Let it sit for an hour or so.

Absolutely amazing. Plus, they tasted even better than they looked!
ingenious!
ingenious. love the teeth!
So so cute! And anything that involves twinkies, oreos and fruit rollups gets extra points as far as I'm concerned. :D
