I professed my love for Shark Week last year with some yummy shark/ocean themed treats and I totally planned on doing it again this year. But then I didn’t. Sorry. I fell off the wagon a bit with my healthy eating with birthdays and vacations so I’m back at it and therefore, haven’t been baking much. But, Joel’s co-workers have slipped hints that they would really enjoy some shark cupcakes again. I hope to make it happen but it’s a busy week with Noah’s first day of preschool and a trip to Fargo for a wedding so we shall see.
Whether or not they get whipped up, I still wanted to remind all you lovely followers of these fun treats in case you are having a Shark Week shindig. I hope that you impress your friends and family with these delicious, gruesome goodies.
Shark Cupcakes – Moist, white almond-y cupcakes bursting with strawberry preserves and topped with a simple ocean blue cream cheese frosting.
Beaches – a vanilla version of dirt and worms, Beaches combines vanilla pudding, vanilla wafers and cool whip for the perfect summer dessert. Top with gummy sharks to make it especially festive!
Blood in the Water – basically just a creepy name for a Lava Flow. This frozen tropical drink combines strawberries, pineapple and coconut for the perfect refresher while watching some gory shark attacks.
