If you’re planning an Under the Sea Party soon, these Octopus Cupcakes could be perfect.
Make a splash at a beach or pool party with an armful of these ocean-themed treats. You’ll want to create one octopus at a time so that the frosting stays moist while you work. For each, cover a cupcake with vanilla frosting. Dot it with blue decorating gel, then use a toothpick to swirl the colors. Press eight sour gummy worms into the frosting as shown. Place a few tablespoons of vanilla and chocolate frosting into separate ziplock bags, snip off a corner of each bag, and pipe eyes and a mouth onto a large gumdrop. Dot the bottom with frosting and press it into place. For a finishing touch, sprinkle on some white nonpareil bubbles.
