Cruise Cupcakes

In the year 2008 B.C. (Before Cruise)

Before we embarked on our cruise last month, some kind neighbors threw us a “Bon Voyage” party. I have a sneaky suspicion they just wanted an excuse to have a party. As with any party, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make… cupcakes!

What kind of cupcakes? Why, beach cupcakes, of course. Sadly, I missed the boat (pun intended) in one aspect of my cupcake-decorating, as it wasn’t until the next morning when I realized, “I should’ve sprinkled some Whole Grain Cream of Wheat on the cupcake plates to make it look like sand!”

Sand slip-up aside, I was really happy with how these babies turned out. So were all the other party guests, as every little cruise cupcake did a disappearing act by the end of the party.

    I love them! My favorite cupcake is the one with the anchor.
    I’m only about five hours from Austin. Now I know where to go if I get a hankerin’ for a vegan cupcake…;)

    sooo cute- no wonder they all disappeared! I can’t wait for your ‘how to decorate’ post- I would to have a go a icing some of my mum’s cupcakes (I don’t trust my baking skills enough to bake my own yet- haha!)

    Fabulous decorating. Looking forward to the fondant post as I just make a mess of icing so tend to make muffins more than cupcakes.

  5. shellyfish says

    Just so cute & fun! Love it! And you know I am *so* looking forward to your fondant post! (And so is my daughter, because then I'll be able to dress up her cupcakes all perdy!)

    Thought of you this morning… I ate purple porridge! 🙂

    I just love themed cupcakes!! These are so adorable! So do you cut all the shapes by hand? I have a big fondant project next week and am looking for some advice… maybe I’ll shoot you an email 🙂

    Those are so adorable… do you think there is a special way to be able to decorate to make them look that good or is it just PURE TALENT! Very impressive!

  8. Jennifer (of Veg*n Cooking) says

    You are really, REALLY good at decorating cupcakes. I need some lessons from one Chocolate Covered Vegan!

    They are so festive! I bet the cream of wheat would have been a nice touch.

  9. Bianca says

    I love the anchor and the whale the most! But they’re all gorgeous. You are super talented.

    BTW, are you far away from the hurricane?! When I heard it was headed for Texas, I worried about you!
