Shark and Life Saver Cupcakes

Picture of Shark and Life Saver Cupcakes
Hello everyone. This is my easy way to make some cute shark cupcakes. Every year I watch shark week on the discovery channel and its one of my absolute favorite weeks in the year. I don’t know why, but I have a shark appreciation. Although I would normally make every ingredient from scratch, I think it’s a lot easier to show you all how to make these with some pre-made ingredients.

I bought these pre-made ingredients from the store.

Materials I bought:

1. Two small containers of any flavor white colored frosting
2. One box of cake mix
3. One box of Twinkies
4. One small package of Oreos
5. One small box of mini powder sugar coated donuts
6. Blue and Black food coloring
7. Red fruit leather

In addition to the above materials I had these extras on hand:

1. Cupcake liners
2. Small plastic storage bags
3. Cupcake pan
4. Cooling cage rack

Step 1: Getting it all together

This step is really simple. I planned on making a dozen cupcakes, half to have the sharks and the other half to have the Life Saver rafts. Unwrap all six of the Twinkies, cut them diagonally on only one end so the sharks look like they are coming out of the water, and take two Oreo’s, split each one in half and scrape the filling out. Once you have the four cookies, lay them on the counter and cut each one in half. Take the halves and push them into the tops of the Twinkies. These are the fins of our sharks!
Shark attack, shark attack, get out of the water and don't look back...! Eat or be eaten. Makes me want to dive right in! Food is art :) Thanks for sharing.
