I am on the R&R committee at work, which means I helped set up and tear down our lovely meal. We had decided to go with a picnic themed sandwich bar. We had everything set out for people to make their own sandwiches, and we added a few picnic goodies like watermelon, chips and a lovely cake for dessert. I made these little cuties as a contribution to our meal, it is something I found online.
I started out with a cake mix, quick and easy. I used a Rainbow Bit mix, and just made it into cupcakes.
Yummy! They would have been perfect as is, Rainbow Bit is one of my favourites. I slapped some blue icing onto them. And i discovered just how difficult it is to make waves with a knife.
I slightly stretched peach candy rings and slid a Teddy Graham (no name brand) into each, this is their floaty ring. Then i just perched them on top of each cupcake!
I have seen other versions that have sand made out of crushed graham crackers, or little umbrellas that you get in bar drinks, but i decided not to go so fancy.
Everyone thought they were really cute, and i had a few people fighting over the last two! I guess cake mixes are sometimes the way to go!
Hope everyone is having a great first full week of summer! It has been raining non-stop here, we may have to break out the pool floaties to!
