Introduction: Shark Attack Cupcakes
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.
