take a bite: SHARK WEEK cupcakes!

Here's the thing-
I was pretty scared of sharks for a solid amount of my life.

Actually.
Wait.
Yeah, no, I'm definitely STILL fully afraid of sharks. I wish I could be one of those people who's like "Sharks are our friends! Beautiful powerful beings" - but I just...can't.
All I think of is TEETH! Big. Huge. Teeth.

So that leads me to talking about Shark Week. I used to be unable to watch it- in college I would stay in my room to avoid it when roommates would watch it. YES I'M THAT LAME. GET OVER IT.

I'm finally at the stage where I think it's not completely horrifying to see seals get annihilated by some great white...and thus, I've learned to love Shark Week (Which starts Aug 10th!).
So clearly that calls for cupcakes, right?
SHARK WEEK CUPCAKES!

Of course it does.

The recipe itself isn't anything fancy- just a basic white cupcake recipe, and a jar of vanilla frosting...along with some blue food coloring + gummy sharks!

Here's how to make it happen:
Step 1: Dye batter blue & bake away!
Step 2: While cupcakes are cooling completely, add blue food coloring to your frosting, but don't fully mix. 
Step 3: Add a few more drops of food coloring to the frosting so there are dark blue lines running through it- this'll make the waves look even better :)
Step 4: To create your waves, frost your cupcake & using a knife-press down and lift up, creating little curly waves.
Step 5: Add a shark gummy, and you're good to go!
