Decorating Cute Beach Cupcakes

Beach Theme Cupcakes-Lighthouse and crab

Cupcake Decorating Supplies Needed

  • Blue Frosting
  • Vanilla Wafers (to make sand)
  • White Chocolate Melts
  • Beach Theme or Seashell Molds
  • Wilton Tip #2 or #3

Frost the cupcakes to make the ocean water. Take some Vanilla Wafers and crush them using either a rolling pin or a food processer to give it the appearance of fine sand. Add the wafers to one half of the cupcake by sprinkling them over it or simply dip the cupcake into the mix to coat it.

To make the chocolate molds you need some decent molds with the beach theme or simply find some cute beach toppers.

Keep in mind that the smaller the molds are the more control you need over your pour. Use a small frosting tip like Wilton tip #2 or #3 and use a frosting bag to pour the chocolate into your mold.

Melt the white chocolate in your frosting bag in increments of 10 seconds until it is melted completely. Pour your melted chocolate into the mold and let it harden.

Once it is done add it to your cupcake as desired! This lighthouse was propped up in the back using a dollop of frosting but you can also (to make it easier) insert a toothpick into your chocolate while it’s hardening so you can have something to hold it up with.

Seashell Cupcake Decorations

Seashell Cupcake


How to Make Them

  • White Frosting
  • Wilton Frosting Tip #21
  • Seashell Mold
  • White Fondant
  • Purple Icing Gel
  • Fondant Brush

Use frosting tip #21 to frost cupcakes. To make the seashell use a pretty seashell mold and press a rolled piece of white fondant to shape it. Trim or smooth out edges as needed.
Dip brush into the purple icing gel and dilute with a little water on a piece of paper towel until the color isn’t so strong. Then brush the ridges over your fondant seashell to give it some shading.

Once dry add to your cupcakes.

Lastly, add a very small amount of brown icing gel to the fondant to give it a fleshy color of a starfish. Once you have the color evenly distributed you can roll it out with a pin and then use your starfish cookie cutter to cut out your starfish.
Place the finished starfish on top of your cupcakes.
