Jump to recipe!

Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday!   If you are new here, grab a cup of tea or a glass of milk and enjoy a cupcake!

Are you having a great Summer? Ours is flying by, as I’m sure yours is too! How about some fun Pool Cupcakes to celebrate a fun outing to the beach or pool?

And how about a video to show you just how to create these fun and easy cupcakes, that were inspired from the What’s New Cupcake? book.

Don’t you love my Cupcake Apron? My good friend, and blogging buddy, Diane over at Created by Diane sent it to me!

You will need…

  • Cupcakes, baked and cooled
  • Mini Nilla Wafers
  • Chocolate Doughnuts
  • Buttercream Frosting
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Blue, Red and Yellow Wilton Coloring
  • Starburst candy
  • Red candy for the bikini, I used Sour Cherry Balls
  • Chocolate Balls wrapped in white foil or GumBalls for Beach Balls
  • Flavored Twizzlers for the Noodles

Which one is your favorite? I love the Bikini Queen!
